Description

St. John the Theological Church - the first of the churches of the Orthodox complex, occupying two hectares. For a long time there was a wasteland on the site of a former sports airfield. The temple complex became an architectural decoration of a microdistrict with a typical multi-storey building. The sketch of the Church of John the Theologian was made by Moscow restorer Irina Timofeyeva in the traditions of early Moscow architecture. It reflects the building canon of ancient Russian churches: 20 measures wide, 30 long, and 50 high. The building was designed by architect Kirill the Brave. Stone snow-white church crowned with five gilded domes with crosses. The top of the central cross reaches a height of 46.5 meters. The belfry of the temple has nine bells, the largest, "evangelism" weighs more than a ton. The top of each facade is decorated with several arched elements resembling kokoshniki (zakomaras), with mosaic icons in the center. The same relief decor is applied on the basis of five chapters. In the altar of the temple there are three semicircular towers (apses) with spherical domes. From the center of the remaining facades are rectangular porches with a gable roof. Two massive staircases leading to the temple through the western and southern portals begin under steeple-shaped tents with four columns. The chapel chapel of the Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles Grand Duke Vladimir and the baptismal aisle of St. Macarius of Altai are located on the ground floor of the church.
