Description of the Patriarch's Palace

 

Patriarch's Palace was erected in Moscow in 1652 on the orders of Patriarch Nikon. He felt that Church of the Deposition of the Robe was too small so he ordered construction of the new resident with a Church of the Twelve Apostles adjusted to the apartments. Today it is turned into a museum. Over 1000 exhibits were taken wither from the State Armory collection or from multiple churches that were robbed by the Bolsheviks on the orders of Joseph Stalin in the 1930's.
