Photo and description
The Serpukhov Kremlin was unlike other similar structures in Russia, since it was built not of wood and kirpis, as usual, but of stone. The Kremlin walls were in good condition even before the war, but they were dismantled and used in 1934 for the construction of several Moscow metro stations. Small fragments of the eastern section of the wall have survived to this day.
In the center of the Kremlin is the Trinity Cathedral, which is an `` octagon on a four '' with a hipped-roof bell tower attached later. The temple was built on the site of an older building in 1696 at the expense of Archimandrite Andronikov's monastery Theodotius. The church was overhauled in 1837-1841 in the spirit of classicism - the Nikolsky and Dmitrievsky side-chapels were added to the refectory, the decor was changed.
