Church of the Transfiguration on the Sands (Khram Spasa Preobrazheniya na Peskakh)

Church of the Transfiguration on the Sands (Khram Spasa Preobrazheniya na Peskakh) Review

Built in the 17th century, this elegant church was closed after the 1917 revolution and turned into a cartoon-production studio. Like many churches throughout Russia, however, it has been returned to its original purpose. The church is depicted in Vasily Polenov's well-known canvas Moskovsky Dvorik (Moscow Courtyard), which now hangs in the Tretyakov Gallery.
