Church of Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, Alexandrov
Church of Kazan Icon of the Mother of God
This temple can be seen in the village of Staraya (Old) Sloboda. The cathedral is interesting for its unusual architecture. The main building is crowned with five domes. Adjacent to it is the three-tiered bell tower towering above the main volume. The tower consists of three сhetveriks of good proportions. It is crowned by a small spire installed on a low dome.
The blue color of the temple’s facades harmonizes with the bright blue and golden domes as well as white lacy stucco cornices and frames. The true relic of the local church was the miraculous icon of Our Lady of Kazan, which had been brought there from the closed Simeon monastery. It was in the temple of the village of Staraya Sloboda until its closure in the 1930s.
