  • A small home temple on the territory of the Kazan Kremlin was built over the supposed place of breaking through the walls during the storming of Kazan by the troops of Ivan the Terrible.
  • The Church of Nikola Ratno was built approximately 1558 year. The temple was erected at the western side of the Transfiguration Cathedral, which was in the XVI century completely wooden. The new church was built of stone and named in honor of Nicholas the Wonderworker. In the people the temple was called the name of Nikola Ratno, because the main part of the parish was made by Streltsy of the Kazan garrison. As a result of the fire of 1815 years the dome of the Church of Nikola Ratno was badly damaged. In the same year the building was restored: The vaults were dismantled, the ceiling was built in their place, the construction was increased in height and expanded at the expense of the new Pridela named in honor of St. John the Lestvynik. Today the church belongs to the Museum of Archaeology and is probably the oldest stone building in the city.
