Panorama of Suzdal city from rampart of local kremlin with view on wooden houses and two small churches standing close to each other. They were built in 18th century on site of 17th century wooden churches that were burnt in Tanning Sloboda (suburban settlements of tanners lived right behind the fortification wall). The summer church of the Epiphany (stands behind on the left) was built in 1781 at the bend of the Kamenka river nearby the earlier constructed winter church of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist (1739) (stands forward on the right). In 1740 to the simple in architectural style the church of St. John the Baptist was added a bell tower with a concave tent-shaped spire, the feature of Suzdal architecture.
