Voskresensky Gate

Initially, the gate was called the Lions, then Neglinsky in honor of the river located nearby. In 1680, the gate rooms were rebuilt, and towers with double-headed eagles appeared above them. The gate changed its name again, this time it became Resurrection in honor of the icon hanging above it.

In 1781, the Iveron Chapel, a repository for the icon of Our Lady of Iveron, appeared between the arches of the gate. And already in 1928, the Resurrection Gate and the Iverskaya Chapel were restored, but in 1929 the chapel died — it was simply demolished. In 1931, the gate itself was demolished. It was only in 1994-1996 that the chapel and gate were finally restored by architect Zhurin.

Today, it is through them that you can get to Red Square.
