(Cathedral of Christ the Redeemer)


Rebuilding this cathedral blown up on Stalin's orders in 1931, was the most ambitious of the construction projects undertaken by the enterprising mayor of Moscow, Yuriy Luzhkov. The basic structure of the new cathedral was built between 1994 - 7, although work is still being carried out on the interior. The original cathedral was built to commemorate the miraculous deliverance of Moscow from Napoleon's Grande Armée.
