The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour

 The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour

The story of the Cathedral is highly mysterious. First of all, it was built on a cursed spot people called Chertolye (from Russian ‘chert’ translated as ‘demon’). In the 13 century all the nuns from the monastery here were taken place in purifying this place from evil forces. In the 18 century the monastery was moved to another place and the Cathedral was finally built here, but it was cursed by the nuns who left this place.
