  St George's Church
by TheWanderingCamel

The story of St George and his dragon-slaying feat captured the imagination of many Christian leaders, with the result that he was adopted as the patron saint of more than one country or town. Moscow was one of them and you will see icons of the saint everywhere. The blue and gold domes of the church next to the Boyar House on ulitsa Vavarky mark one of the churches dedicated to him in the city, this one was built in 1658.
It seems a pity that this is not one of Moscow's reconsecrated churches - instead it is a craft gallery, and not always open.
