    The territory of modern Zajauz'ja is rich in various churches, but like a gemstone, ingrained in the old streets of Moscow is the Temple of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Strastnoy Boulevard, near the Metro station "Pushkinskaya". The Church was built in the mid-17th century in the Sloboda on the site of a wooden church. The northern wall of the temple and entrance gate decorated with colored tiles, art whose authorship is ascribed to the master Stjepan Polubesu (workshop which was next door). After 1917 the Church is not closed and all its interior and Bell have come down to us in its original form. Leaves a lasting impression splendor carved iconostasis and the icon of the mother of God "Trojeručica". To facilitate access to this miraculous shrine all comers on the outer western wall of the Temple in Kyoto, izrazcovom placed the list with her. With the blessing of his Holiness Patriarch Alexy I, in 1948, uspensky the temple becomes the metochion of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church in Moscow. During my visit to the temple among the few visitors I hear Bulgarian speech. Temple enjoys the attention and respect of the inhabitants of the district and the city.

    Many travelers already told about this ancient temple. Of course, the age of the Church inspires respect-the year 1654, as indicated on the nameplate of the State reporting on the special status of the Church. The Church is traditional for pre time: five-domed cupola, hipped multi-storey tower, elegant white kokoshniki, decorating the outside of the temple. Was in during Saturday's service-very many parishioners felt that Church is the one most in the County. The iconostasis is simply amazing, rich, gilded. Of course, not resist, did a couple of pictures.

    Located next to the Metro station Taganskaya. Very cute, small, but bright, that is visible from afar. Built in the year 1654. Inside very beautiful golden iconostasis and some unusual door with flowers. Milaya, affable acolyte supplemented the pleasant impression.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
