  • Kolozha-this is the oldest church of Grodno, an architectural monument and a place where divine services are spent. Standing on the banks of the Nemunas River. Beautiful nature, Majesty building, location in the city centre, next to the locks and fire of a Firehouse. This place is definitely not leave anyone indifferent.

  • I was on the restoration of this church, in 1990 year. Everything was in ruins, but there was a special energy of this place. In the wall found an immured fresco wall all in jugs (unreal acoustics), passages for singing very narrow on the outside walls are decorated with polished stones, colored, in the form of crosses. A very ancient structure, 8 centuries. All recommend that go to this church and its wonderful atmosphere. In the year 2017, was again restored the current.

  • Love this place. The church building is composed as two halves-stone and wooden. Rather strange spectacle, but here it is necessary to know the history. For centuries by wars and landslides Church and convent have repeatedly destroyed and restored again. On the walls of Kolozhi, as established scientists, can be traced back not less than 5-minute reliably known repairs. But what many could not make war, did. Its waters over the years podmyvali Hill on which stands the Church and in the year 1720, this led to the slant of the building. Bank of the Neman River came very close to the temple and in the year 1853 the southern wall of the temple and the western part along with ceiling collapsed into the river. Restoration work was begun only in the year 1894, during this time the temple has survived two more landslide. (C) 1896 to 1906, was a fortified Beach, built a specific platform and tumbled stone walls were replaced by a wooden prosthesis. very beautiful view.

  • The most beautiful monument in Grodno
  • very nice! beautiful old church
  • It is hard to believe that this church stood here already almost 900 years ago! A man realizes his vanity in the face of such buildings, rispekt!!

  • Fantastically beautiful city with incredible energy. On the banks of the mighty Nemunas. Everything about the whole area. All European style and richly. Popular among the townspeople, but I can't say that there's a crowd or pilgrimage. Majestic Monument of architecture. Our heritage.

  • It's something incredible, both inside and outside. I liked the contrast of the ancient part of the building and a modern, renovated the tree itself does not know why so "hooked". The Interior just penetrated the atmosphere dominating over the centuries, this magnificent structure.
