Silver domes and bell tower

Silver domes and bell tower

The church of the Smolenskaya Icon of the Mother of God was built in Suzdal in 1696-1706, and restored by Olga Guseva in 1960. The church has many features in common with other buildings belonging to the same period. The cornice of indented cut stone, balusters and small kokoshniks, resembles that on the Emperor Constantine Church, while the broad wall surfaces with three symmetrically placed windows remind one of the Ascension Church in the Saint Alexander Monastery.
The Church's bell-tower belongs to the period of Russian Classical architecture at the end of the eighteenth century.

Arthur was a fantastic help to my parents and my mother in-law when they visited Moscow. My mother in-law has some mobility issues and Arthur could not have been more helpful in assisting with the wheelchair, ensuring that guards opened gates so they could drive into the red square and Victory Park, and that my mother in-law was able to see as much of Moscow as anyone else. My parents also had a great time and enjoyed Arthur's knowledge of the history of Moscow, as well as his excellent photography skills. Thank you Arthur!
