Dormition Cathedral (Assumption Cathedral), Moscow Kremlin, Russia (UNESCO)

The breathtaking interior of the Assumption Cathedral in Moscow, a Russian Orthodox cathedral dedicated to the Dormition of the Theotokos. It was built in the late 15th century and from 1547 til 1896 the Russian monarchs were crowned here. It is also the burial site for most metropolitans and patriarchs of Moscow.
The card was sent by Maria (raima) for the  Postcrossing Favourites Tag.
