Museums and monuments of culture of MoscowArchitecture and internal furniture of the Uspensky
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.
