«Assumption Cathedral at Twilight»

The grand five-domed cathedral of Assumption (Dormition) of Our Lady was built in brick on money commissioned by Ivan IV The Terrible on the grounds of Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra (Monastery) in Sergiev Posad in 1559-1585. The magnificent church, that was erected to commemorate successful military campaign of the first Russian Tsar against Tatars and taken Kazan-Khanate, repeats in its basic proportions and constructions the Assumption Cathedral in the Moscow Kremlin, but it even bigger than its counterparts in Moscow and Vladimir. After recent renovation in the monastery (2013-2014) dedicated to the 700 anniversary since the birth St. Sergius of Radonezh, the exterior of the huge cathedral was repainted and lighting of the church looks much brighter than before restoration.
