Photographer's Note

The Trinity Church is one of the most magnificent, graceful and youngest Vladimir churches built during the years 1913 to 1916. It was built by the local Old Believers and it is sometimes called the “Red Church”, as it is made of red brick.

It was consecrated on the 30th of October, 1916. The church was built in the so-called pseudo-Byzantinesque style by architect S.M. Zharov. The building consists of two parts connected with one another, i.e. a church and a bell tower. A high silhouette with a tiered upper part is topped with a helmet-shaped dome, the western part, i.e. the bell-tower is a little bit lower. The white stone socle, outlines of the windows and portals contrast with the dark color of the building. The church is decorated with the bands of profiled bricks. The last service took place in the church in 1928 and the local archival office was placed there.

Today, the Trinity Church is widely known not as a church but as the “Museum of Crystal, Lacquered Miniatures and Embroidery”.
