Overview

Located in the village of Bykovo is the Church of Vladimir Icon of Mother of God built in 1789. It may be the only one of its kind in Russia as it is an oval house compared to a crossing square, which is how most Orthodox churches are built. The church is also considered to be one of the most beautiful in the country.

This is shocking me. Absolutely unusual type of Russian church. Sure that it was very well situated when builded. But time and history dramatically change the landscape. Really need to see it!

Beautiful church with special 2 floors pseudogothic design ! Have never seen this kind of design of church in Moscow. Getting there was kinda hard if you dont have your own transport..and lots of stray dogs in the village..

Thank Jeong M
