Cathedral of the Assumption

Cathedral of the Assumption

The Cathedral of the Assumption is the Kremlin's oldest and most important church. It stands on the site of Moscow' s first stone cathedral built by Ivan Kalita In the 14th century. The largest edifice of its time in Russia, the Cathedral of the Dormition was built in 1475-1479 under the supervision of the Italian architect Aristotile Fioravanti after the model of the 12th-century Cathedral of the Dormition in the ancient Russian city of Vladimir. A year after the construction of the cathedral, Moscow became the capital of the Vladimir-Suzdal principality, and later the capital of all Rus. The cathedral's history clearly reflects its important role as Russia's central church for more than 400 years.

The photos you took of us were terrific,their was one of John, myself and Donna in front of st Basils was beautiful but it was the only one that wouldn't print. The quality of your photography was great and the photos of other sites in Moscow was a very good idea.
