    In detail

    The main altar of the church bears the name of the Transfiguration, but due to the miraculous icon of Our Lady the Joy of All Who Sorrow, in honour of which one of the chapels is consecrated, the church is called the Church of All Who Sorrow.

    In 1683-1685, a stone church was built in Ordyntsy on the site of the wooden church of the venerable Varlaam of Khutyn, in honour of the Transfiguration of the Lord. According to legend, there in 1688 the icon of Our Lady the Joy of All Who Sorrow healed the gravely ill sister of Patriarch Ioakim. An altar was made in the church in honour of the icon, and in 1770 the chapel of the icon of All Who Sorrow was restored through private donations. 

    In 1783-1791, a refectory with altars of Varlaam of Khutyn and the icon of Our Lady the Joy of All Who Sorrow was attached to the building from 1685, and also a three-tiered bell. This project in classical style was completed by architect V.I. Bazhenov. In 1834-1836 in a project by O.I. Bove, the church itself was completely rebuilt in empire style. In 1812, the church suffered a fire and has since been restored twice (in 1814 and 1904).

    The church building is completed in the form of a cylindrical rotunda with Ionian porticoes, decorated on the outside with stucco decor and medallions. An empire iconostasis is installed in the church, and the floor is covered in cast iron tiles done on the basis of Bove’s sketches.

    The church was closed in 1933 and the bell removed, but the interior furnishings was preserved. In 1941-1945, the storage of the Tretyakov Gallery was located in the church. The church was opened again for worship from 1948. In the 1950s, a church choir was founded here that became famous and recognised in musical circles. On 3 January 2010, Patriarch Kirill gave his blessing to revive the historic Synodal Choir based on the choir group of the Church of the Icon of Our Lady the Joy of All Who Sorrow. A spiritual-educational centre currently operates within the church, which unites the efforts of the clergy and the congregation in missionary, catechistic and social work.

    Pedestrian Zone near Tretyakov Gallery

    In 2013, an area around the Tretyakov Gallery will become a pedestrian zone and will include Pyatnitskaya Street, Klimentovsky Lane, Ordynsky Cul-de-sac, Lavrushinksky Lane, Kadashevskaya and Bolotnaya Embankment.

    It's best to start your walk from metro station “Novokuznetskaya”. Walking along Pyatnitskaya Street, you will come to the old Klimentovsky Lane, connecting Bolshaya Tatarskaya Street with Bolshaya Ordynka. Here it is impossible not to notice the excellent example of XVIII century architecture, the Church of the Holy Martyr Clement, Pope of Rome (1762—1774). The part of Klimentsky Lane from Pyatnitskaya to Ordynka has long since been a pedestrian area. Its northern side forms a small shopping area with shops and cafes.

    Crossing Bolshaya Ordynka, don't forget to have a look at Ordynsky Cul-de-sac, which is located on route between Bolshaya Ordynka and Lavrushinsky Lane. From the right-hand side the cul-de-sac is flanked by the fencing of the Joy of All Who Sorrow Church. In 2000, the square at the end of the cul-de-sac was demolished, where a bust of writer I. S. Shmelev was installed. From 2006, the area has been a pedestrian zone.

    One of the main sites in this pedestrian zone is located on Lavrushinsky Lane – the State Tretyakov Gallery. The famous museum occupies the even side of the lane, which was named in the XVIII century after homeowner Lavrushina.

    Exiting onto Kadasheskaya Embankment, you will cross the Vodootvodny Channel by Luzhkov Bridge and find yourself on Bolotnaya Embankment. Nearby, on Bolotnaya Square, a sculpture composition by M. M. Shemyakin has been installed as well as a monument to great Russian artist I. E. Repin. You may continue your walk further, leaving the pedestrian area and visiting “Red October”, where, in addition to cafes and restaurants, the Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography can be found.
