Traditional Russian church cross stitch chart

This pattern was inspired by a church in Rostov the Great – one of Russia’s small towns with long history. The church of the Savior on the Sands was build in 17th century and is a good example of Russian architecture of the period. I think that the chaste white walls of this church give a great impression of old Russian culture. They say that on the inside the church is decorated with beautiful paintings, but unfortunately tourists are not allowed in.
