This place is truly a jewel in middle of the city. It looks very different at different times of the day. From outside it is truly an architectural marvel. A photographer's delight!!

Moscow is associated with churches, but the ones with golden domes. Meeting such a great example of gotique architecture is really surprising!

It is a beautiful church, the curious thing is at the end of mass, the priest comes out to the parking lot and blesses like 50 cars.

Especially if there is some organ music concert going on. You will not regret it, plus it is a great chance to meet new people: concerts are normally being visited by a lot of expats who live and work in Moscow.
