Photographer's Note

Main entrance to the St Savva Monastery on the Watching Hill, view from inside. During the time when Tzar Alexey residence was here, 1654-1670, walls and 7 towers were constructed here, as XVII century in Russia was quite unbalanced time; it was called "Rebellion Century", as lot of internal struggles appeared in this 100 years.
***
And XVII century was also quite dangerous time in all Europe also, last century before the Enlightment was quite dark in certain ways.
