At the eastern part of Sofiyaskaya embankment you can see an impressive bell tower of the Saint Sophia Church in Middle Sadovniki. The tall tent-roof bell tower was built in 1862-1868, facing the Kremlin (over the side of Moskva river). The mid-17th-century Russian Orthodox parish church of Saint Sophia is hidden behind the modern buildings attached to the belfry on the Balchug Island opposite the Moscow Kremlin.
