Photographer's Note

The main simbol of Astrakhan and its Cremlin is Assumption Cathedral (1698-1710) which dominates over the city and nearby Volga. Built by masters from Yaroslavl, it retains traditional features of Russian church architecture, while its exterior decoration is definitely baroque. Left is cremlin belltower (1908-12) encased Prechistenskie belfry gate. Hope you enjoy the picture.
