The Gateway with Church of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist (1693 - 1699)
The Church was constructed with funds of "distinguished people" Stroganovs. It displays the characteristic features of "Stroganov buildings" in intricate details and free treatment of classical forms. The lower part is cut by a gate arch. On both sides of the arch are staircases leading to the upper part with the cube of the Church surrounded by a gallery.
The Church of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist above the gateway, dedicated to the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, was built in 1693–1699. At present, confessions for the pilgrims are performed in it every morning.

Again, good composition. Nice color and beautiful Orthodox church architecture not framed by evergreen trees along the sides. The film revives the group of moving people - typical of Russians.

Astonishing these lines of fir trees which enables us to focus ourselves on this splendid and coloured architecture and to occult the scaffolding which I catch a glimpse of on the left. Cheer for this beautiful restoration. Passage which seems very attended according to your photograph. Pretty and interesting photograph, thank you for your instructive note.
With all my friendships and an excellent WE,
