"Cathedral of the Assumption ~ Frescoes" Top 5 Page for this destination Kremlin - Assumption Cathedral Tip by Canadienne
Kremlin - Assumption Cathedral, Moscow: 17 reviews and 27 photos
The breathtaking frescoes in the Cathedral of the Assumption were painted in 1642-4. The first step in their creation was to gilt the walls, in order to create the appearance of an illuminated manuscript ~ this photo hardly does it justice, as the colours are much richer and deeper in person.
Be sure to keep your eyes open to all the beauty around you, as the frescoes on the inside of the domes are simply gorgeous and might be missed. There are also a couple of non-painting items ~ a silver chandelier and the pale Monomakh throne, that will be drawing crowds.
