The Patriarch's Palace and the Church of the Twelve Apostles of Moscow Kremlin

Патриаршие палаты Московского Кремля
Фотобанк Лори

From 1653 to 1655, Russian craftsmen constructed the Patriarch's Palace for Orthodox Patriarch Nikon. The ground floor is reserved for administrative offices, the second held staterooms, and the third was the Patriarch's personal quarters. The Church of the Twelve Apostles, which is adjacent to the chambers, was combined with them into a single architectural structure, and was the chapel for Russia's Patriarchs. Now the church and chambers contain a museum exhibition.
