It was a nice church, but I think not so many tourist visit this place, It were only us, at that time. And not so close to central (Bauman), we had to walk around 20 minutes to got here

I gave this a 'poor' review only because the building is completely covered by wooden scaffolding and you are not able to enter the building. So it is not seeable in the least at present.

I guess it is historical. The outside is nice. The architecture is nice. The inside is also nice. But, nothing out of the ordinary. If you have been to some old churches with a bit of history and money, then this one is nice but nothing spectacular. I went when there was mass going on. So, the atmosphere was nice. The walls had lots of ornate ikons, etc. If you have some time worth it. If not, you did not miss much if you have been to other good churches.

An absolutely amazing church right in the heart of Kazan a short walk from Baumann Street and the Kremlin.
There are huge renovation works going on at the moment and almost the entire exterior is covered in huge wooden scaffolding. But inside is open as normal and what an utter gem it is.
The iconography is stunning, so ornate and intricate. The candles and insense give it a lovely aura and the centrepiece of labelled icons is breathtaking.
I would put this as my favourite church in Kazan so far and believe me it beats off very stiff competition!
By the way, although the exterior is largely covered, you can still get an idea of its venerable magnificence and the Bell Tower and domes are completely clear.
An absolute must see and I know I'll be back again during the few days I have left in Kazan.

Details of this building are incredible. It was under construction but still it was beautiful from outside and inside. This Church has also an upstairs and a downstairs.

Under heavy repair in very bad condition. In my view certainly not the best church in Kazan. It is very large with lots of colors but lacks some sobriety

We discovered it while exploring the Kremlin and kul sherif area in the downtown of Kazan, beautiful architecture,with golden and blue floral decorations..

Very beautiful cathedral, and somewhat different with the fruit and plant decorations on the exterior and interior, and non-onion dome towers. There are actually two churches inside- the basement church has more modern, vibrant paintings, while the upper part has older and more traditional decor. Both are very beautiful.

I saw this from the hop on hop off bus and so we decided to go back and visit. Located close to the Kremlin and Bauman street it is easy to get to. However there are a lot of steps you need to climb to get inside so be warned it is not for those in wheelchairs or with weak knees. The outside is really beautiful the inside is nice but you are not missing heaps if you only visit the exterior.

In my opinion, this church is rather beautiful from outside and is worth seing. But inside it looks like thousands of other churches all over Russia, so if you`ve seen many, it isn`t worth going inside.
Visiting the church is free.
