Overview

At the very beginning of Malaia Dmitrovka street, stands this magnificent church. It was constructed in 1649-1652 and looks almost as if it were twisted together out of lace. A long time ago, this area was called Putinki (from the word 'put', meaning 'way'). This was because it stands at the juntion of two major roads, one going to Dmitrov and the other to Tver' (Tverskaia ulitsa). This church was the last building in Moscow to employ the tent-roofed architectural style. Not long after construction, Patriarch Nikon prohibited this style and required that all new churches should be built with cross-and-cupola.
