Photographer's Note

Here is a shot of the church of Repose of the Virgin in small town Uglich. It's built in year 1628 and quite rare in design: as you can see, it has a 3 long vertical domes, which was not so rare in years of it's making. But lately, in 1660-s, newly erected head of the Russian Church, Patriarch Nikon, started the campaign against this particular design of the churches, and lot of these roofs were demolished.
So this one is one of 3 or 5 such churches that still can be seen.
Inside it's not big, homely and quite well-kept.
