Christ the Savior Cathedral

The history of the temple is really replete with interesting details. The place where it now stands was originally called Chertolya, in honor of the Chertoryi stream flowing at the bottom of the ravine, and was considered cursed for people and domestic animals. When the Alekseevsky Convent was located here during the reign of Ivan the Terrible, the nuns, by their presence, helped cleanse the place of dark forces. In the 1830s, it was finally decided to move the monastery and build a temple in its place. According to legend, the abbess of the monastery, leaving this place, cursed him: “It is not a temple to be here, but a puddle!”

It is a well-known fact that the current Cathedral of Christ the Savior is the second one built on this site. The first one was built in honor of the victory over Napoleon and was built for more than forty years. At the same time, the builders overcame various difficulties: fires, collapses of the foundation, flooding with groundwater. After its opening, the temple existed for less than fifty years and was destroyed by the Bolsheviks. However, it was also very difficult to blow up the building: the final destruction of the building required a second explosion.

The authorities decided to build the Palace of Soviets on this site. The idea was striking in its grandeur: it was assumed that the height of the building would exceed 400 meters, and on its roof would be installed a rotating statue of Lenin. The foundation was laid, but the continuation of construction was prevented by the outbreak of the war, and all construction stopped. More than two decades passed before the idea arose to use the built foundation and build the largest outdoor pool in Europe, Moscow, here.

During the years of perestroika, it was decided to restore the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in its original place, exactly corresponding to the original. The pool was dismantled, and construction of a new temple began in the mid-90s. The beginning of the new millennium was marked by the opening of the restored Cathedral of Christ the Savior, to which miraculous shrines were transferred. Many believers are convinced that the revival of the holy place was possible only due to the intervention of higher forces. And the place where it is located is endowed with powerful mystical power: it is not for nothing that various religious buildings have been built here since time immemorial, and it is here that people flocked in search of protection and help.
