"Nikolsk Mountain" is a historical center of Mozhaysk. Once there was a stone Kremlin on this hill, but it was disassembled in the 18th century. There are two cathedrals in the former territory of the Kremlin. One of them is a temple in the name of Peter and Paul the Apostles (or Old Nikolsky Cathedral) erected in stone in the 19th century. The temple was closed in the 30s of the 20th century. The building has been reconstructed for a movie theater. In 1992, the temple was returned to believers. The ancient bond and decor have been remained here. This is a cross-domed triapsidal church having four internal piers.
The second cathedral – New Nikolsky – was built at the beginning of the 19th century in pseudo-Gothic style. A knitted-goods factory was being located in the church during the soviet period. In 1994, the temple was transferred to believers. The cathedral of considerable dimensions can be seen from far away. It is decorated by Gothic arches, paintings, decorative components and a four-level bell tower with a high spike.
