«Architectural Ensemble of Suzdal Kremlin at Sunset»

Suzdal is a spectacular ancient Russian town, renowned for it’s magical fairy tale appearance that attracts thousands of tourists every year. In 2015, it was decided to illuminate the town in order to showcase its beauty. The first lighting was installed to highlight the distinctive white stone and wooden architecture of the town’s main attraction – the Suzdal Kremlin.

This photograph of the architectural ensemble of Suzdal Kremlin was taken from the Ivan's Hill in sweet light right before getting dark at nice summer evening in middle of July 2016. To the left stands the beautiful Nativity Cathedral with blue onion domes (constructed between 1222-1225, and rebuilt in 1530 and 1730), then the Archbishop’s Chambers and tent-roofed bell tower (from the end of the 17th century), and on the right, the Church of St. Nicholas ( constructed of wood in the village of Grotovo in the Yuriyev-Polsky District in 1766, but later moved to the Suzdal museum in 1960).

Photo #373 taken on July 17, 2016, during a long-distance two-day countryside tour to Suzdal and Vladimir with my dear clients from USA, Andrew and Karen Green.
