Uspenskaya Church in Golden Autumn Season

«Uspenskaya Church in Golden Autumn Season»

Taken in Autumn from the earthen rampart that was once part of the Suzdal Kremlin’s fortifications, we see the distinctive red walls of the Assumption Church. Originally constructed in the second half of the 17th Century, and rebuilt in 1720 after a devastating fire raised the city in 1719, the Church of Assumption (Upsenskaya Tserkov ) is located in the eastern part of the kremlin on Kremlevskaya Street on the “Princely Courtyard”, the same road where the Gate Tower of the Prophet Elijah once stood. The fire is said to have been the revenge of Peter the Great on the citizens of Suzdal who raised against him.

Take a look at another picture of this church: “Walking Down the Earthen Rampart”.
