Refectory church of St. Sergius
The Refectory church of St. Sergius (Tserkov Prepodobnovo Serguiya s Trapeznoy palatoy) was once considered a winter church, now it is open in summer as well. One can see an architectural boldness because the vaulted ceiling is held up without bearings. The wall paintings were made in 18th century.
The iconostasis of the church is taken from a Moscow monastery and dates from 17th century. One can admire stone carvings on the building. With its exceptional architecture and the facade décor abundance, the Refectory Church is one of the best examples of Moscow baroque. Wall paintings, white stone carvings half covering the columns, window frames as well as vine paintings on the columns were splendidly performed having heeded the building proportions.
