- This small church nestled behind the Cathedral of the Assumption was built by skilled artisans from Pskov during the years 1484 to 1486. The church took its name from a robe said to have staved off a Tatar onslaught. The interior is covered in religious frescoes dating mostly from the seventeenth century, depicting the great figures of religion and history in Russia. Looking up you will see Christ and the Virgin Mary, while the church's pillars are decorated with portraits of the likes of Prince Vladimir and Alexander Nevskii, conqueror of the Swedes and mythic Russian hero.
