Domes of the Terem Palace

Domes of the Terem Palace

The Kremlin is the historical, spiritual and political heart of Moscow and the city's most famous landmark and tourist attraction.
In 1635-1662 the constructors of the royal Terem Palace, the craftsmen Bazhen Ogurtsov, Trefil Sharutin, Antip Konstantinov and Larion Ushakov, erected the Verkhospassky Cathedral (Higher Cathedral of the Savior). Like all domestic churches of the Terem Palace, it has a 17th century copper roof and 11 small drums with gilded cupolas.
This part of the Kremlin is particularly striking, with beautiful shining tiles in bays and on drums, and an ornamental frieze; inside the cathedral, there are extremely valuable icons painted by Fyodor Zubov, a carved wooden iconostasis and Royal Doors decorated with embossed silver.

WE ONLY GAVE ARTHUR TWO AND A HALF DAYS TO SHOW US ALL OF MOSCOW AND HE CAME THROUGH. WE SAW ALL OF THE IMPORTANT CHURCHES AND MONUMENTS INCLUDING THE RED SQUARE AND MR. LENIN HIMSELF. A HIGHLIGHT BESIDES THE NORMAL WAS OUR VISIT TO THE "MUSEUM OF THE GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR". HE WAS ALWAYS ON TIME AND VERY COURTEOUS TO US. WE THANK HIM FOR INTRODUCING US TO MOSCOW.
