The Rostov Kremlin Museum Preserve – unique XVII century architectural ensemble of five churches
Ensemble of Rostov Kremlin was original residence of the bishops of Rostov-Yaroslavl diocese. Therefore, in ancient times it was called the bishop’s court, or the Metropolitan. Currently the ensemble is divided into three relatively independent functional zones: the actual bishop’s courtyard, adjoining the cathedral square from the north and south – Metropolitan garden.
The main dominant of the ensemble is the Assumption Cathedral – the oldest building in the city. The temple was built on the site of their white stone predecessors of XII – XIII centuries, in the 1508-1512. Most of the extant buildings of the Kremlin were built much later, which had a significant impact on the formation of the artistic look of the buildings.

And the ensemble as a whole, according to the Metropolitan Jonah was to symbolize the celestial city – Mountain Jerusalem.
