  3. 3. Interesting facts….“For most of its history, Russian architecture has beenpredominantly religious. Churches were for centuries the onlybuildings to be constructed of stone, and today they are almost theonly buildings that remain from its ancient past. The basic elementsof Russian church design emerged fairly early, around the eleventhcentury. The plan is generally that of a Greek cross (all four arms areequal), and the walls are high and relatively free of openings.Sharply-sloped roofs (tent roofs) and a multitude of domes cover thestructure. The characteristic onion dome first appeared in Novgorodon the Cathedral of Sancta Sophia, in the eleventh century.”Text taken from “Russian Art and Architecture” http://www.geographia.com/russia/rusart01.htm
