Great emka 2020-07-29 23:38

Hello Jorge, Yes, I hasve meant this church, I have seen it on the Google map. Very interesting note. I have learned something new. I haven't heard about the Stroganov family, that they were the richest in Russia. The name of the church in Russian is Rozhdestvenskaya Tserkov, does it mean the nativity of the Virgin Mary? Not far from it is the Dormition - Uspienskaya. I find the domes fantastic. The smaller ones are like in Moscow but the bigger one is unique, like a Christmas bubble. And your presentation is superb.

Best regards MAlgo

I found the russian name, but I don't know its meaning. the churches in russia have so many long names.the stroganov family helped czar to conquer siberia and they monopolized the commerce of salt in russia.
take care
