Today the cathedral is decorated by ten cupolas, 8 churches have harmonically arranged around the main cathedral in a form of 8-pointed star. All churches are connected with each other by the foundation and internal gallery which is pained with interesting vegetative ornaments. Every cupula is unique, every cupula doesn’t look like the other. The brick with white stone which was used in the construction process adds it special strictness.

According to the legend, the treasury of the kingdom was hidden in the cellar of the cathedral till 1595. In our days cathedral is at disposal of Russian Orthodox Church and also museum of Moscow. Every Sunday divine services take place in the cathedral.
