Cathedral of the Twelve Apostles

Built in 1655–56 by Patriarch Nikon, this was his private church. An exhibit here displays icons removed from other Kremlin churches destroyed by the Soviets. The silver containers and stoves were used to make holy oil. Next door to the church is the Patriarch's Palace.
