Church of the Introduction to the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor Maikl_rus created this beautiful drone video of Russian church which had some unfortunate timing: it was built on the eve of the Russian Revolution.  Finished in 1913, the Church of Pet is located in the Ryazan Oblast (province), near the eastern edge of the Great East European Plain.  For reasons that aren't clear, the giant church was built next to a tiny village; based on its size, it would have been much more suitable for the provincial capital city.  Not surprisingly, it was heavily damaged in the ensuing turmoil.
