«St. Barbara Church in Zaryadye Park – Angled View»

Angled view from Zaryadye park on a path leading to the restored St. Barbara's Church (Church of St. Varvara) framed by trees. The amazing St. Basil’s Cathedral stands behind it on the picture.

The church dedicated to St. Barbara (Rus: Varvara) is located at the beginning of Varvarka street. It was built in the area of Kitay-Gorod between 1796 and 1801 by the Royal architect Rodion Kazakov in the classical style. It was constructed on the site of an ancient church built in 1514 by Aloisio the New (Aleviz Fryazin) the Italian architect who was responsible for Archangel Michael's Cathedral in the Kremlin. In the 1920s the church was closed, although subsequently restored between 1967 and 1967. It was returned to the Orthodox Church in 1991.
