Angle view from a 4-th tier of the bell tower of Holy Trinity – St. Sergius Lavra on the snow-covered Dormition (Assumption) Cathedral of Our Lady topped with beautiful onion blue and golden domes with crosses during a snowfall in a winter season. The grand five-domed white cathedral was built in brick on money commissioned by Ivan IV The Terrible on the grounds of the top-ranked monastery in Sergiev Posad in 1559-1585. The magnificent church was erected to commemorate successful military campaign of the first Russian Tsar against Tatars and taken Kazan-Khanate. The building repeats in its basic proportions and constructions the Cathedral of the Dormition (Assumption) in the Moscow Kremlin that was the central cathedral of the Orthodox Church and was based, in turn, on the forms of the most ancient and highly prized Cathedral of Dormition in the ancient Vladimir city.
