Photographer's Note

Church of Elijah, the Prophet, celebrates the victory of the prince Yaroslav, the Wisdom, against a bear in the edges of the Volga River. You will see this bear some days ahead.
Many years after (1647-50) two churches of timber located in this area were dismantled and they built this church. Its interior was painted by artists from Kostroma and Yaroslavl in 1680.
In 1778 the government decided to create a new urban system in the city, the old Kremlin was destroyed and this church was choose as a central part of the project.
During soviet government the place was transformed in a museum but in 1930 it was menaced by demolition and after some protests it became a museum of Atheism. In 1989 it became a church again.
Behind the church there is that long park in the edges of Volga river.

A Igreja de Elias, o Profeta, celebra a vitória do príncipe Yaroslav, o Sábio, contra um urso nas margens do Volga, vocês verão esse urso daqui alguns dias.
Muitos anos depois, entre 1647-50, demoliram duas igrejas de madeira e ergueram essa igreja no lugar. Em 1680 o interior dela foi pintado com murais com o trabalho de artistas de Kostroma e Yaroslav.
Em 1778 demoliram o velho Kremlin da cidade e decidiram recriar o plano urbano da cidade, traçando ruas tendo essa igreja como referência.
Em 1920 a igreja virou museu e o governo soviético tinha planos de demolí-la, mas por conta de protestos acabou transformando-a em museu do ateísmo. Em 1989 o prédio voltou a ser uma igreja.
Atrás da igreja está aquele parque longo que fica nas margens do rio Volga.
