«Golden Onion-Shape Domes with Crosses of Terem Churches»

Stunning onion-shape gilded domes (cupolas) with crosses of court churches constructed on the roof of the Terem Palace in 17th century shine on the sun against blue sky.

The Terem Palace was the residence of Russian rules up until the reign of Peter the Great. These beautiful gilded domes that can be seen from Cathedral Square of Moscow Kremlin are crowning a number of small churches that used to be the in-house temples for the Tzars and their family members and located on different floors of the palace. Among these churches are St. Catherine’s Church, Church of the Resurrection and the church of Our Savior Behind the Golden Trelis (Verkhospassky Cathedral).
