The Assumption Cathedral
Constructed by the order of Ivan the Terrible. Austere and monumental, it follows the forms of the Assumption Cathedral of Moscow Kremlin which was a symbol of the state power. The narrow high windows in two rows underline the impressively thick walls.
The Assumption Cathedral is the church that is visited by pilgrims and tourists alike and unfortunately you are not allowed to flash there. All of the columns and walls are decorated with beautiful and ornate paintings and frescos and the giant iconostasis is also worth to take a closer look at.

Bonsoir, cher Sasko,
Un grand merci pour ce cadeau architectural. Le fait d'évoquer Ivan le Terrible, l'on tremble !!!
L'image est belle avec peintures insérées dans ces parties cintrées. Il est bien dommage de ne pas voir l'intérieur qui doit bénéficier d'une beauté très particulière.

brilliant perspective. I like here most the layers of colours with a black and white backdrop. Great tombs with vibrant colours. Great composition. Tfs.

I have said it already: I like this place very much. They were so cool to paint the towers in so bright colors and the dark blue goes well with gold.
Very attractive place.
Your work very well done as always: nice framing with the tree branches and most of all you were lucky with the sky so dark -yet well lit cathedral.
Very well done,

Prelepa pravoslavna crkva sa ovakvim nebom.
Arhitektura je boanstvena.

Hi Sasko, what a striking building. The colours are just amazing and I love the low POV and the moody greya sky which add to the drama and the perspective. I have never seen churches like this...absolutely fascinating. TFS and have a good day, Lisa

i colori dei tuoi scatti mi colpiscono sempre molto così come i contrasti cromatici.
Bello questo POV dal basso.

Sharpness, exposure, colors, pov, vertical format, black & white borders and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congratulations!

Zdravo Pilgrim. Beautiful on the outside too and made even more charming through your selection of POV and the dark sky which accentuates the glorious colours of the domes and the white of the walls.Very fine photo. Postao si majstor sto se tice zgrade i crkve.Pozdrav. Klaudio.
