The Church of Ascension

Built in 1532, it was the first tent-roofed temple in Russia. The church is justly considered one of the best specimens of early Russian architecture. It was just open after years long reconstuction and can be seen in all its white beauty. I haven't been inside, though. More information can be found here.

P.S. Watch a wave story on my Cyprus Photos site.
