View of the illuminated by spotlights the church of St. George the Victorious at spring twilight when the old-fashioned street lamps were just turned on. The golden-domed church was erected in a neo-Russian style of architecture on the hilltop of Poklonnaya Hill in 1993-1995. It is a part of the Victory memorial park dedicated to the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945.

St. George is the patron of Moscow city and one of the most popular saints in Russia. The figure of St. George slaying a Dragon adorns the emblem of Moscow, an ancient city, and the capital of the country today. In the past, he was worshiped as the patron of princes and warriors, and as Russia’s heavenly protector.
