The Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow was consecrated in May 1883. It may be the largest Orthodox church in the world. The building is magnificent, but not as old as it looks: it was rebuilt in 2000 after the original was demolished by Stalin. A foundation hole gaped on the site until under Nikita Khrushchev it was transformed into a huge public swimming pool. With the end of the Soviet rule, the Russian Orthodox Church received permission to rebuild the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.
