  • Now our way lies in the Church of the Ascension of the Lord for Serpuhovskimi gate. This is the first visit to this temple. Turned out to be very close to the Metro. Area near the temple very well-groomed and green. Beautiful belltower. Shrines in the temple there is a reliquary quite a lot., Holy Trinity Testament Trinity icon, the Rev. Sergei of Radonezh, Tsar-martyr Nicholas male choir performing "symbol of faith" from Voronezh Director and conductor of the choir Deacon Serafim Dubanov. Performed works by Rachmaninov, m. Kotogarova, p. Chesnokov and others. Really enjoyed the choir and calm at the temple. Recommend.

  • 300 years of Holy Ascension for Serpuhovskimi gate decorates a Zamoskvorechye. Construction of the Church is connected with the name of the tsarevitch Aleksey, who had allocated funds for the construction of the Church. In the 20-ies of the last century, for obvious reasons, the temple came under the vserazrushajushhuju arm of the new proletarian authorities but fortunately to the ground, as sung their hymn, was not destroyed. In the last decade of the twentieth century the temple was to revive ... Now the church certainly is an ornament of Zamoskvorechye, anyway-Great Serpukhov Street. True, it is by this street Chapel closed some global dormant building ... However, the Church of the Bolsheviks, survives and construction ... By the way, at the temple for more than 10 years children's Sunday school, adult Sunday school, there is also a children's shelter.

Where to stay in Moscow

Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive.
