It is located on the Cathedral Square. It was constructed by an Italian architect in the 1510s. For centuries the Cathedral gave home to the burials of tsars (Ivan the Terrible is one of them) and grand princes as well.

Now there are 56 tombs, most of them beautifully ornamented. The influences of the Italian Renaissance are visible. The beautiful stonework on the walls, the shell scalops and other elements wear the sign of the Italian architect.

There are beautiful 16th and 17th century frescoes everywhere on the walls, in the inside. Some of them are even older from the time of the old church above which this Cathedral was built.

You can also see here one of the sacred relics of the Orthodox Church, the remains of saint miracle workers.
