  • Today visited the Patriarch's Palace, where it's not happened. Overall impression: great! Paint story Chambers began in 1652, with the Decree of Patriarch Nikon to build on the site of the Metropolitan three-storey courtyard houses and the Church of the twelve apostles, there is little point, as can be read in any guidebook to the Kremlin. What happened at the Russian masters-can be seen during a tour of the Kremlin. When you visit Chambers note the year 1672 thumbnail "Phillips Chamber. The boyars and clergy elected to announce the Kingdom of Mikhail Romanov ", as well as the vestments of Patriarch Nikon, available in the Museum. By the way, December 8, 2017 year on February 25, 2018 year in the exhibition hall of the patriarchal Palace is located the second part of the exhibition "Lords of the ocean. Treasures of the Portuguese Empire from the 16th-18th centuries ", the first part of the exhibition is located in the exhibition hall of the Assumption of the Ivan the great Bell Tower Belfries were casted here.

To this structure adjoins from the south a domestic church of the patriarchs, originally consecrated to Philip the Apostle until the dedication was altered to the present one in 1682.
