American Ambassadors to Restore Unique Church Situated near Moscow

17.12.2010

The Embassy of the USA in Moscow has allocated money for maintenance of the unique orthodox Church of the Sign of the Mother of God in Dubrovitsy.

It is already the third site in Russia that has received assets from this fund. The money ($ 82,000) will be used to strengthen the base of the church.

It should be noted that the Church of the Sign of the Mother of God in Dubrovitsy is considered to be one of the most beautiful and mysterious churches of the Moscow Region. It was built in 1690-1703, and is famous for its grace and appearance unusual for the corresponding historical period; it reminds of Italian architecture rather than of Old Russian churches.
