  • This church a precious historical site, beautifully renovated, but why oh why is there a tacky souvenir shop inside? This is not a large church, and the shop is not tucked away. It’s right at the entr...  more »
  • The kolozhskaya Church of St. Boris and St. Gleb Church in Grodno was erected in the 12th century and was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. Very atmospheric Chapel in a beautiful location in a park with panoramic views of the left bank. Images look great. Church services are held valid (one of the oldest temples in Belarus). In the people the Church name is Kolozha building belongs to the tradition of the Byzantine Temple of culture, built into the walls of the vessels-resonators. Unfortunately, only part of the stone walls, the other part of the wooden church, built much later. Kolozha is almost in the center of Hrodna and convenient for visiting tourists and the faithful Christians.

  • The most beautiful monument in Grodno
  • very nice! beautiful old church
  • In the middle of a park clean and green lies this old Orthodox Church. Is a place worth visiting. Is a very nice place really; along the perimeter of this church from the outside, you can touch the stones set into the walls as "modern" bricks. Legend has it that if you touch one of these stones while at the same time make a wish, that wish will come to pass. A place that you would not visit if you go Grodno, magical as its stones.

  • 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.
