Angled view of the three-tier bell tower of the Church of St. George the Victorious on Varvarka street from the side of Zaryadye Park in snowfall in the winter season. The bell tower was built in the years 1818-1819 in the neo-Gothic style at the expense of the parishioner of this church, the merchant Pyotr Fedorovich Solovyov. The bell tower stands on the podklet (basement) of an earlier building, which was lost forever during the Moscow fire in early September 1812 during the occupation of the city by French troops. The first tier of the bell tower is decorated with pointed arches. The upper tier with a spire has a sloping roof resembling a tent crowning the structure and lancet arches characteristic of the neo-Gothic (pseudo-Gothic) style.
