View from Varvarka Street to the spotlighted upper part of the beautiful five-domed Church of St. George (Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos) on Pskov Hill in winter twilight under snowfall. All drums are decorated with arched-columnar belts and end with attractive onion-shaped cupolas. The squared tower are crowned with the remaining two tiers of the Moscow keel-shaped kokoshniks (decorative elements in the traditional Russian architecture) remaining after the reconstruction of the roof. There were three tiers (before fire 1812) typical of the Russian Uzorchye (pattern-work) style of the 17th century.
