Храм Христа Спасителя

  1. 1. By Ann Nazaikina Natalia Novak School: 913 Class: 9A Teacher: M. Mushtaeva
  2. 2. History The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour was built in gratitude for God's intercession in the critical period of Russian history as a monument to the courage of the Russian people against the Napoleonic invasion of 1812.
  3. 3. History Originally, the idea of building a memorial church belonged to the Army General Mikhail Kiiny and Alexander I started to realise his idea. It took almost 44 years to build The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. It`s unbelievable!
  4. 4. History This temple was a symbol of the old Russia. It`s orthodox and bourgeois building. Unfortenately, it was destroyed in the USSR, because all people were atheists. There were two explosions on the 5th of December in 1931. Luckily, many people wanted the restoration of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. So, its construction started in 1994. People all around Moscow were really happy!
  5. 5. History Now, The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour is a memorial to Russian military glory, a monument of our great, manly and brave Russian defenders.
  6. 6. Outside The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Moscow. Inside it is an extremely grand place that has 5 golden domes with the same design. If you look at the temple from a height, the temple looks like a cross about 86 meters wide. The height of the temple with a dome and a cross is 103 m.
  7. 7. Inside The temple is designed for 10,000 people. It was erected in the traditions of Russian-Byzantine style. There are stunning paintings of important events from the history of Russia on the walls. The painting inside the church is about 22,000 m 2 , and the glided paiting is around 9000 m 2 .
  8. 8. Interesting facts • There are also some viewing platforms, where we can see truly unique places! There is a bird`s-eye panorama of the central part of Moscow. • Now, there are a lot of church services such as Easter like many years ago. • There was a little creek and a ravine in the past, and this place was called Chertolye, because people thought that it was accursed. But, thanks godness, a good and kind Mother Superior cleaned from curse this place. • Lastly, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour was made on the foundation of the Palace of Soviets
  9. 9. Finally, we think that it is a grand place, and we hope that The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour will further make people happy.
