Emperor Paul I, on whose orders began the construction of the temple, very much like to the Cathedral of St. Petersburg was similar to the Cathedral of St. Peter's in Rome. Kazan Cathedral is really reminiscent of the Italian church, but at the same time the Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan is very distinctive.
