  • Also called the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin in Putinki, this beautiful church is truly rare and unique because it is one of the last churches with roof at the cusp of history of Russian architecture ("the cusp is an architectural element triangular plate with decorative function. Is a typical element of Gothic architecture: it is present in the façade more Gothic cathedrals, such as the duomo di Siena and the Duomo di Orvieto ") The church there are in fact six cusps. Three of them, arranged in a row, Crown cover. The 4th cusp above the refectory, while the Center covers the Bell Tower. The church square pyramidal style ends. The construction of the building began in 1649, following the burning of a pre-existing structure were completed in a few years, so that the Church was completed in 1652 but because of his unorthodox style judged absolutely, Patriarch forbade that other churches were built in this way. Restored several times since the late 1800 's, was closed by the Soviets as almost all other religious buildings in the years ' 30 and only in 1991 was returned to the cult citizen. This church is located near the Central Tverskaya Street and worth a visit.

  • Is among the most recent of churches with domes "onion", but it is still among the most evocative. The external structure, surrounded by the buildings of the late nineteenth century and the modern ones, gathered inside, a little dark but charming.

  • The Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Christmas Church, i.e. "on the way", the fortress was constructed by craftsmen 1649-1652. Church in a remarkably beautiful with intricate kokoshniks, braided trims Windows decorated with octahedral belfry. Simply amazing riot of architectural forms, fascinates the wealth of fancy architects. It is believed that this is the last time in Moscow built and most striking example of stone hipped roof architecture.
