The top of one of one of seven Stalinist skyscrapers, Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Building (residential), and the river Moskva (Moscow) are in the background of the picture.

The Church of the Conception of St. Anna is one of the oldest surviving churches in Zaryadye. According to the chronicles, the wooden church towered on Velikaya (Great) street in 1493. The name of the church “in the Corner” corresponding to its historical location – the temple was built on the outskirts of the densely populated Zaryadye in the corner of the Kitay-gorod wall. In the sixteenth century, St. Anna Church was rebuilt in stone, and the first Russian Tsar Ivan IV the Terrible granted to it a miraculous icon of the Mother of God (Our Lady). The church’s cellar and walls were made from limestone sourced near Moscow, and the vaults and dome drum are lined with small bricks.
