Church Exploded in 1964 to be Reconstructed in Moscow

Transfiguration of Christ Church of the 18th century was the last church blown up by Soviet authorities in Moscow.
      Six drafts of the church made by the architect Ivanov in 1884 have come down to us and will serve as the basis for modern reconstruction of the relic.
      It used to be a regimental church of the 1st Preobrazhenskiy Regiment of Life Guards. The church was blown up under the Soviet power in 1964; however, the underground base of the church survived, and a cross was set up on this point.
      Archaeological works were carried out in the underground part of the church. Reconstruction of the church in Preobrazhensky Square in Moscow may take not less than three years. Rarities unearthed during archeological excavations will be displayed in the church museum.
