Fun Fact: Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow

Fun facts about Russia

After Napoleon’s defeat, Russia built the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow to celebrate their victory over the French Empire. When the Soviet Union took over an Imperial Russia, the church stayed until the rule of Joseph Stalin who had it demolished for the site of Communist legislature though that never came to be when the Germans invaded during World War II. The Russian Orthodox Church rebuilt the church during the 1990’s with it being finished in 2000. However in 2018, the church leaders there realized the foundations were sinking and were in need of repair.
