Photographer's Note

My gastro-intestinal troubles were reaching a limit when I found the Pushkin Square, anyway I saw a marvelous church ahead and went there to see it closer. It was the Church of Nativity of the Virgin at Putinki. The original church was in timber and got fire and in 1652 a new one was built, it was the last church in this old style built in Russia. In 1935 it was closed by the communist government and transformed in a place where the Moscow circus trained monkeys and dogs, the building became a church only after 1991.

Meus distúrbios gastro-intestinais estavam chegando ao limite quando alcancei a Praça Pushkin, mas eu havia visto uma linda igreja além da praça e fui lá conferir. Era a Igreja da Natividade da Virgem em Putinki.
A igreja original era de madeira e pegou fogo e em 1652 ergueram uma nova, essa foi a última igreja em estilo russo antigo a ser erguida. Em 1935 a igreja foi fechada pelo governo comunista e o local se tornou ponto de treinamento de cachorros e macacos do Circo de Moscou. O prédio só voltou a ser igreja depois de 1991.
