Photographer's Note

Псков, церковь Ильи Мокрого, 1677 год.
Another Pskovian church with a funny name. It's a Church of Wet Elijah the Prophet. Why is he wet? Because the full name, given to the church in year 1677, when it was constructed, is "Church of Elijah the Prophet on the Wet Mellow". Later name was shortened and Elijah suddenly became wet.
Well, it's the story of this church.
