Good evening. Thank you all for your attention to my photos. And the comments.
In the background is the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow.
Cathedral of Christ the Savior Cathedral (Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ) in Moscow - Cathedral of the Russian Orthodox church near the Kremlin on the left bank of the Moskva River, the site, formally known as the Chertolye (street Volhonka, 15 - 17). The existing structure - Implementation in the 1990s re-creation of the same name outside the church, established in the XIX century. On the walls of the temple were inscribed the names of the officers of the Russian army, who fell in the War of 1812 and the other at the time of close military campaigns.
The original temple was built in memory of the Napoleonic invasion, "the preservation of the eternal memory of the unprecedented zeal, fidelity and love for Faith and Fatherland, what in these difficult times extolled the Russian people themselves, and to celebrate our gratitude to Divine Providence for saving Russia from threatening her death. " It was built by the architect Konstantin Ton. Construction lasted nearly 44 of the year: the church was laid September 23, 1839, consecrated - May 26, 1883.
