(4.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Observe colorful geometrical ornaments and crosses made of stones and tiles on the exterior walls of Kalozha Church Boris-Gleb Church. This 12th-century church is distinguished from other Orthodox churches by its building and decorative techniques. Walk on the majolica floor made of yellow, green, and brown plates. Notice numerous ceramic pitchers built into the upper part of the walls. The southern wooden wall replaced the old brick one, which was destroyed by a landslide.

  • Well preserved and partly restored church nicely situated a bit outside the city with a good view on it. 
  • This gem over the Neman-Krononom exists since 12 century, stands on the Hill. Kolozhskij Park we go the family regularly, including Holy Communion in this church. Kolozha favourite students, lovers of swinger couples, people with children. There are many nature-in the Park near the Church updated here and fir trees (we collected oil with warts), maples, rjabinki, Acacia, tufted carpets. landing was timed to the Festival of cultures. Nearby there is a stele which built 38 years ago. Recently the Park appeared stone sculptures-the layout of the Church and its surroundings. Near the church there is a stone steps (huge boulders), which is also not a few years, it is interesting to stroll, commemorative stones, remembering David Gorodenskogo ... Everything breathes history-rush and find yourself on the waterfront, and there you'll find castles and museums and all the mountains, as in all European cities. And in October, beauty-yellow bright maples and endless photo shoot ... It is better to see once than hear a hundred times. Come and take a look at our beautiful church!
