St. Nicholas on the Bersenievka

St. Nicholas on the Bersenievka

This beautiful church is about 350 years old. It is located on the small ireland on the Bersenievskaya Embankenment, on the other side of the Moscow-River from the Moscow Kremlin. The rumors says that in the middle of 17th century they built a tunnel undergraund, at least 500 meters under the river, between this church and the Kremlin. This church and place have very interesting history.

In 1656, the prominent Moscow official Averkii Kirillov replaced a wooden Church of St. Nicholas on his urban estate fronting the Moscow River with a brick church dedicated to the Trinity, but persistently known as the Church of St. Nicholas on Bersenevka. Completed the following year, the church was attached to a rare example of 17th century brick domestic architecture in Moscow. That structure was subsequently much rebuilt, as were ancillary parts of the church, but the central part has been well restored, particularly the roof.

We had an unforgettable visit to Moscow thanks to Arthur! He picked us up from the train station and took us to our hotel. Later he picked us up for an evening tour of the city. The next day we did a full day tour including the Kremlin and a car museum for our son. Arthur even helped us to purchase some Russian vodka to take home with us. All the photos that he took of our family throughout the tours was the icing on the cake!
