Church of the Intercession in Fili

This church is another beautiful example of the “Naryshkin” baroque style also called Muscovite baroque. It was built between 1689 and 1694 by a boyar who was the uncle of Peter the Great. Surmounted with five golden domes, the façade was originally blue. However it was badly damaged in Soviet times and after its restoration it was painted red. The iconostasis of the Church of the Intercession is outstanding. It was made by the greatest masters of this art in the 18th century.
