The scenic view from the observation deck of the Water Tower in Rostov Kremlin on the lake Nero and Spaso-Yakovlevsky Monastery. In the forefront of the picture is the top of Grigorievskaya tower of the Kremlin, bearing elegant wooden bulb-shaped cupola. The tower received its name from Grigorievskaya tserkov (the church of Saint Gregory of Nazianzus) located close to it.

The tops of eleven circular towers of Rostov Kremlin covered with wooden shingles, with seven of them having beautiful curved shapes resembling onion church domes, which look beautifully from a distance. The wooden roofs of the towers, houses and churches of Rostov Kremlin were rebuilt in 1953, after a strong storm has ripped through Rostov Veliky, taking with it most of wooden construction.
