You will find the church of the Assumption of the Most-Holy Mother of God in a side-part of the resurretion cathedral and it was decorated with ornate stucco-works and glazed tiles during the 17th century. The churches of New Jerusalem are the only ones in all of Russia that are decoarted with tiles that way.
