Architecture and internal furniture of the Uspensky

Успенский Собор

The Uspensky  cathedral differs the refined simplicity of registration of facades, extraordinary integrity of volume. This Cathedral is topped by five gold domes similar to helmets of old russian soldiers. The building has three inputs: southern, western and northern. The southern party of a temple is turned to the cathedral area where there were many solemn ceremonies - this input is conceived as main and issued especially elegantly.

To doors the wide ladder which is coming to an end белокаменным by a portal from three semicircular arches conducts

The input in a building as though is protected with two huge picturesque figures of angels.

Above in arches from a white stone we can see figures sacred, and above them the image of the Mother of god with the baby. These multi-colour frescos are executed by unknown Russian artists of XVII century (subsequently frescos were repeatedly restored).

The spatial decision of an interior of a cathedral was unusual to the Moscow architecture.

The Uspensky  cathedral was under construction as the main temple of Russian state, but was used as a public building where ceremonies of secular character were arranged. Here there were ceremonies of wedding on an empire, purposes of metropolitans and patriarches, the major decrees were disclosed. In a cathedral buried chapters of Russian Orthodox church. Inside of a building, about walls, it is possible to see the gravestones closed by copper silvered covers (covers are made in the beginning of XX century).
