The Transfiguration Cathedral was erected in 1505-1516 by Moscow stone-masons who were in the service of Grand Prince Vasily III. Here, in the monastery library, a manuscript of the famous Russian epic The Lay of Igor’s Host is believed to have been kept in the late 17th century. The refectory in the Spassky Monastery was built in the first third of the 15th century together with the Church of the Nativity which adjoins it from the east. Several reconstructions were undertaken in the 18th and 19th centuries. After the works of the 1955-1958 the Refectory was restored to its original form (the church was restored only partially).

Questa è una vista generale di Russia

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!

Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.

Although you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.

Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).

The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.

Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers. They launched the earth's second satellite, called Sputnik 1, and were the first country to put a human being into orbit around earth. (The first one is called the Moon.)

After the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia became a federal republic of 83 states.
