Photographer's Note

Less known russian village Sviyazhsk occupying the small island amid Volga river was found on 1551 as a support base of russian army during the campaign against Kazan khanate. Later it was converted to provincial town with two monasteries. Here on the picture is one of them - the monastery of the Assumption of the Virdgin. Right figure is Assumption cathedral (build on 1560, right figure) and the left one is monastery's belltower. Hope you enjoy that.
