2. Kremlin of Kolomna. It's interesting that on its territory there are ordinary residential buildings.

Russia steals all its architecture from the US. Viva la USA.

There are very few Orthodox churches in the USA, most of them are probably in New York City due to its diverse immigrant population. Well..maybe also in San Francisco.
Marcus Campbell
Those churches are too colorful. Viva la USA
Wicca
Too colorful? What about this? :)
Coco Stein
Orthodox churches are always colorful, often with golden roofs and lots of embellishments. That's what stands them apart from Catholic straight line Cathedrals, Lutheran and others churches. The pictures are always so vivid that it almost feels like they've been color-enhanced. Until you visit those places.

I'm not a specialist in architecture, but I must disagree. Not always :) For instance, Kolomenskoye in Moscow or city Alexandrov (residence of Ivan the Terrible). All white and elegant

Kolomenskoye

That's definitely a very nice church! I must admit, I have not seen that many one color orthodox churches. The one in the city I grew up in was all white, but the roofs were golden. The other one had round blue rooftops. Looked beautiful.

And sometimes they are just wooden and have no colour at all... But rave of shapes makes your forget about colours :)
Coco Stein
I agree, there is no need for colors when the shapes can make such a statement here!
Marcus Campbell
Thats a little better.

Wanted to show you the Orthodox church in my home town Riga. It's got an amazing architecture!
Wicca
Wow! It's beautiful! And this is the cathedral in my home town (Alma-Ata) :) http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bc/Ascension_Cathedral,_Almaty_KZ.JPG
