We had already a Russian on-ground ferry that helps some passenger cars to pass the hardest parts of Russian roads. This is also an on-ground ferry but for some completely different purpose. It helps the big river boats to
cross the big dam on their way by... putting the big river boat on some sort of a train and transfer it a few miles on ground. Look down for the pictures, personally I was fascinated with such an approach!
The church on the picture above was the biggest cathedral in Moscow and in all Russia in 19th century. It's construction took fifty years to be fully completed. Then the communists came. They had a holy war against all
the religions in Russia so they blew up thousands of small and big churches. In 1931 the order was issued to destroy this pearl of Russian architecture too. It took only a few hours to destroy it.
