Foundation in detail

Cathedral of Christ the Savior

Russia, Moscow

The Cathedral took almost 40 years to construct, from 1839 to 1883. On completion it has become the largest Orthodox Church in the world being able to house up to 10 000 people. Its rich interior decor is known for frescoes and stone ornaments. This magnificent edifice has always been very inconvenient for the Soviet rule, as it did not fit in the newly introduced ideology and propaganda for atheism. On December 5, 1931, the Cathedral was dynamited and reduced to rubble.    With the end of the Soviet rule in late 1980s, a social movement for reconstruction of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior emerged. In July 1992, President B. Yeltsin issued a decree aimed to establish the Moscow reconstruction fund, and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior has become its main point of concern. Due to a rapid pace of construction the completed Cathedral was consecrated in 2000.
