Simeon Stylite Church

The first wooden [church] (http://kudago.com/msk/attractions/cathedrals-churches/) was built on this site at the beginning of the 7th century. Its consecration coincided with the accession to the throne of Boris Godunov, which took place on the day of the feast of Simeon the Stylite. A hundred years later, Tsar Fedor Alekseevich ordered the replacement of the wooden building of the church with a stone one, which was later decorated in the style of Russian patterns, and a refectory and a bell tower were added to it.

During the Soviet era, the church miraculously survived. The first time it was planned to demolish it in 30, when it was planned to build Kalinin Avenue, but it did not. Then the idea of demolishing it arose again, as it did not harmonize with the modern high-rise buildings being built around it. At the cost of many efforts of the Moscow public, the religious building was preserved. In the late 1960s, reconstruction was carried out: the roof was restored, and the original design elements of the refectory and the central church building were recreated. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, crosses were returned to the heads of the church, and over time, services resumed in it.

**Simeon the Stylite Church** has been a favorite wedding place for intellectuals for several centuries: in 1801, Count Sheremetev and former serf singer Praskovya married here Kovalev, later the wedding of Russian writer Sergei Aksakov and Olga Zaplatina took place in this church, and at the beginning of the 20th century Mikhail Bulgakov married Elena Nurenberg here.
