Entry into Jerusalem and Pyatnitskaya Churches

The summer Church of the Entry into Jerusalem and the winter Pyatnitskaya Church were built near Kremlin of Suzdal (behind Trading Rows on Kremlivskaya Street) in 1707 and 1772, respectively. Today, the churches seem to stand separately as if by accident, but before they formed an integral and very beautiful ensemble. They were rounded with the 18th century low brick walling with stone gates of a rare shape.

The summer Church of the Entry into Jerusalem is peculiar. It is adorned with decorative eaves made of small arches standing on consoles and looking like kokoshniks, the woman's headdresses in old Russia. The Church was topped with five domes before. However, only the central one has been preserved.

The Pyatnitskaya Church is a usual winter church. However, it differs from other Suzdal churches. Its eastern fore-cornered side features an octagonal, the drum of which has a rare embossed dome in the form of a figured vase.
