This is a charming church both inside and out. Learn the history, walk the outside and go in to enjoy the religious art inside: it is beautiful!

On the place where this Church was build, Dimitry, the sun of Ivan the Terrible, was assassinated. The frescoes inside tell the story.

Another beautiful onion-domed church built in 1692 which is now a museum. Go inside to view the frescoes.

The red brick church with blue domes has been built to remember Ivan the Terrible's son Demitry who was murdered here. You are allowed to take pictures inside by paying a charge. Nice to hear the story behind while you visit this place. Recommended.

... at the Bolschoi this site was an important add on for my history understanding. Just look more closely at the large painting, opposite the Ikonastase, to see the sequence of events, showing the "murdering" of Dimitrij.
