«Getting Dark Over the Churches of Suzdal Kremlin»

The view from earthen rampart on the churches of Suzdal Kremlin in winter evening when lights were just turned on and blue sky just began to darken. From summer 2015, finally, the architectural ensemble of the kremlin In 2015, was illuminated with spotlights to highlight the distinctive white stone and wooden architecture of the town’s main attraction.

In front of this picture stands the beautiful wooden church of St. Nicholas that was built in the village Grotovo in Yuriyev-Polsky Dirstric in 1766. In 1960, when a special place had not been allotted for museum of Wooden Architecture and Peasant Life yet, the wooden church was moved and assembled right in front of the main cathedral of Suzdal Kremlin, the white-stone Cathedral of Nativity of Our Lady with blue onion domes. Nativity Church was constructed in 1222-1225 on the site of two even earlier temples, and rebuilt in 1530 and 1730.
