  • 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.

  • 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.
