Domes of an Orthodox church in the city of Nizhny Novgorod. Russia. View of the Volga River.Gold. The most common color of Orthodox domes represents eternity and heavenly glory. Temples with golden domes were dedicated to Christ and the great church holidays - Christmas, Present, Annunciation.
The five domes are a symbol of Jesus Christ and the four evangelists: John, Mark, Luke and Matthew. Five-domed churches are found in Russia more often than others.
The onion dome in Orthodox architecture is the embodiment of prayer, the desire for heaven. According to researcher Eugene Trubetskoy, such a dome on the base of the drum resembles a candle flame. Bulbous chapters are characteristic of Russian architecture of the 16th – 17th centuries.

During sunset, the snow-white walls of the monastery absorb sunlight.
View of the New Jerusalem Monastery from the wall.
The New Jerusalem Monastery is one of the most famous and revered monasteries of the central part of Russia, the main feature of which is that the Resurrection Cathedral located here was built in the image and likeness of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher on Calvary in Jerusalem, although the outer monasteries are completely different from each other.
In the Resurrection Cathedral, as in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, there are three main shrines of Christians:
Golgotha ​​is a small rock where Christ was crucified (in Greek the word "Golgotha" means a frontal place)
Cuvuclia - a small chapel with the Holy Sepulcher, the burial place of Christ
Temple of the Resurrection of the Savior, the place of the life-giving resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Golgotha, the place of the crucifixion of Christ, is located on the second tier of the temple; a staircase to the right of the main entrance leads to it. In a small room, a cross was installed, made in Jerusalem and the same size as the Jerusalem Cross of God. Also here is a stone with a crack imitating a rock that broke at the time of the Savior’s death, when the blood of Christ was shed on it.
On the west side, a rotunda was attached to the temple with a huge two-tier dome, in the center of which was built a cavern, that is, a chapel with the Holy Sepulcher. Here is a bed on which the body of Christ was placed in a cave on the side of Mount Calvary.
In the temple next to the entrance is the Stone of Anointing, to which the Savior’s body was transferred, when it was removed from the cross, here he was anointed with peace (fragrant oil) and prepared for burial.
In the New Jerusalem Monastery, as in Jerusalem, the entrance to the temple is located on the south side. In the eastern part is the underground church of Saints Constantine and Helena, located at a depth of six meters. The legend has been preserved that it was at such a depth that Queen Helen found the Life-giving Cross. The Israeli temple of Constantine and Helen carved into the rock.

The Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin is located in the historical center of Nizhny Novgorod, at the confluence of the Oka and the Volga, it was here that the history of the city began in the 13th century. The Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin was built as the main stronghold in protecting Moscow from the attack of the troops of the Kazan Khanate.
Over its life, the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin withstood numerous sieges and attacks of enemies and has never been taken by storm, and its last battle pages relate to Polish intervention in the early 17th century, when a militia was formed under the leadership of Kuzma Minin and Dmitry Pozharsky.
In total, the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin has 13 towers, of which five are square with gates and eight round. Their height is from 18 to 30 meters, they are interconnected by a fortress wall, the width of which reaches five meters, and the height - from 12 to 22 meters.

The attraction was built in the park "Fairy Tale" in Moscow.
This is a modern Ferris wheel, 35 meters high with enclosed cabins. No one is in the cabins, because the photo was taken before the closure of the park.
At the moment, ferris wheels are operating in the city in the Sokolniki and Izmailovo parks. The 50-meter wheel of Izmailovsky Park is the highest in Moscow and one of the oldest in the city. Prior to dismantling in 2016, the highest ferris wheel in the capital was installed at VDNH. In 2018, VDNH Park will receive a new attraction - a 140-meter wheel, which will become the highest in Europe,

Falcon and Lake Seliger - a collage of two photos. I shot a bird in Moscow Square during the festival. The background was ugly. I decided that the freedom of the falcon would be more comfortable and chose the landscape on the lake for him.
