Architects of Constantinople

    Newer Older

    This is Cathedral of the Dormition at the Pechersk Lavra in Kiev. It was cold and my tripod was like holding on to liquid nitrogen.

    The cathedral was built by a group of Antonite monks from Constantinople on top of a complex network of caves under the Berestov Mount overlooking the Dneiper river.

      Wow, some amazing art work in the facade. Indeed best viewed large. Looks like a bad guy in the bottom right.

      Kiev has some wonderfully elaborate buildings, just a shame I didn't have the time to capture them when I was there but I good job you did. Great shot

      Of course the cold helped the CCD capture such a great image!
      I can't believe the complexity in the roof line.

      Actually, everything you see here is the product of the 17-18th centuries - architects of Constantinople would have had troubles trying to recognize their child ;-) But a sympathetic building, anyway...
