Lovely colours.

La iglesia no me gusta mucho. Me parecen demasiado fuertes los colores. Me encanta la explicación que has dado sobre la historia del Principe Dimitri.

Я не люблю церковь много. Цвета кажутся мне, чтобы быть слишком сильными. Я заколдован с объяснением, что вы дали на истории Принца Димитри.

Olga I. Yakovenko on April 12, 2009

migueljv, thank you for your visit and your nice comments to my photos. As to the church and colours. I would like to explain, that at that time chuches were the only objects for architecture, except palaces of noble people. Churches were for everybody. The colour of domes is specific - these are colours of Our Lady in the Orthodox symbolism. Bright colorus - first, fortunately they were repainted, as this is not often, and second - here the winter and midle seasons are often grey and dark. Only bright colours gave support to people during the long preriods without sun. Olga

Gracias Olga por tu explicación. Ahora todo tiene más sentido (pero siguen sin gustarme....)

Un saludo y gracias de nuevo.

Спасибо Ольга за ваше объяснение. Теперь все имеет более ощущаемый (, но они продолжают без меня симпатию этого....) Приветствие и изящество (благодарность) снова.
