The design of the Cathedral contains five domes, that are shifted to the east. The center one is covered with gold and the others are covered with silver. The Cathedral of the Archangel was a burial place for the Russian monarchs until the end of the 17th century. There are total of 54 graves of male members of Russian Tsar's family, such as Ivan Kalita, Ivan IV Grozniy and the others.
