Photographer's Note

5 kilometers from Moscow there is the less known monastery of Saint Nikolas which is named Nikolo-Ugreshsky. During the Soviet era in was closed and the labor commune was esteblished on its place. Nowadays it was reopened and restored. Here on the shot you can see two main churches of monastery. The big one is Transfiguration Cathedral (1866-80) while the red construction is Assuption church, the oldest church of monastery (built in 1763). Hope you enjoy it.
