    One of the best preserved architectural structures of ancient Rus period Belarus. Located on the high Bank of the river Neman. The temple was built in 1180 years. Entire surface decorated with inlays of colored boulders and 974. Walls built jugs-resonators. improving the acoustics of the Church.

    Indescribable spirit of antiquity and the connection with history. Minus one-you cannot take pictures without limitation inside and no information about the history and characteristics of this MASTERPIECE of Hrodna architects stands on the street. TO VISIT NECESSARILY. WAS NOT KOLOZHE WAS NOT IN GRODNO.

    Truly a unique place. The direct surroundings very well groomed. From the Cathedral through have a beautiful view of the Niemen. I was surprised that the inside of the Church is quite a big point. However, you need to somehow keep.
