My name is Ksenia. I live in Moscow, but I’d like to tell you about one interesting building in Svitino. It's a small village with an interesting history near Moscow. In 1654 there was Vorontsov's mansion with a park and a stable. In 1779 the Church of St.Maria was built there. It had the altar, a bell tower and a refectory (dining room). The church was decorated with a white stone and had a balcony and porticos, it is said to have been very beautiful. The Facade of the church was decorated with pilasters and a large dome had a golden cross.

Unfortunately, the church was destroyed in the 1970-s, now we can see only the bell tower. However, you can feel the power of this place, the beauty in ugliness. The bell tower is not in a very good condition, its walls are red, but you can still see a white stone here and there. For me, this place is unusual and magnificent. It makes me think about old difficult times. When you look at the bell tower you notice its beautiful shape but there are no bells any more. A few small trees and red flowers are growing now in its windows. The birds make their nests on the top of the Bell tower. There is a big wood cross at the foot of the church tower and here a sacred church service is still held.
