The Church of the Resurrection in Uspensky Vrazhek
The Church of the Resurrection in Uspensky Vrazhek
According to various sources, it was built in 1629-1634, although a church at this location was mentioned in the archival documents as early as mid-16th century. The bell tower and refectory were built in the 19th century. Another church built in honor of the prophet Elisha was once located nearby. It was built to commemorate an important event: the return of the Polish Patriarch Filaret, the father of the first Russian Tsar of the Romanov Dynasty, Mikhail Feodorovich, from captivity. During the war of 1812, the church was burned down. It was rebuilt as part of the Church of the Resurrection in 1820. In Soviet times, it was not closed, so the icons and interior have been preserved.

The Church of the Resurrection Slovusheye on Arbat
On this spot in the second half of the 16th century stood a church bearing the name of Apostle Phillip, probably founded by the Metropolitan of Moscow and Russia Phillip (Kolychev), which is also the origin of the name of the street it lies on - Filipovskiy pereulok. The church which we see today was constructed in 1688, but suffered heavily during Napoleon's invasion and was even scheduled for demolition. But in 1818-1822 it was restored and the main altar was consecrated in the name of the Glory of the Resurrection. It was closed down during Soviet times. M: Arbatskaya.

Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin in Gonchary
Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin in Gonchary
Built at the site of an ancient church in the middle of the 17th century in the Russian "uzoroche" style, although the belltower, appearing some centuries later, is in the baroque style which was common in its time. In Soviet times the church did not shut down, which is why its interiors, belltowers, and several shrines have been preserved, including the revered Icon of the Mother of God of the Three Hands (1716). M: Marksistskaya.
