Kalozha Church Boris-Gleb Church, Grodno

(4.9/5 based on 120+ 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. Look for fragments of 12th-century frescoes in the apses. The church has been included in the World Heritage Tentative List.

  • Written about this church is not enough, therefore, will focus specifically on the unusual architectural decision of the Church. Surviving from the 12 century brick part (the one that fell in Neman in 18 century) WINS at the expense of the ceramic inserts as crosses and diamonds, as well as polished colored boulders. Inside is pretty simple. From the terrace above the River with beautiful views of the Franciscan monastery and Church on the opposite bank

  • Driving through Grodno, take a peek at Kolozhskuju Church. Than the elusive me this place reminded Church on the island of Patmos in the Altai Mountains. Church on the simple ground did not build. It's amazing how she with 12 centuries. Now this is a symbiosis of wood and masonry. Can time comes and will restore the inside painting. The local miraculous icon continues its useful and difficult to deal with. Time has no power over such places. Sails by as Neman, which can be seen from the Hill. Amen.

  • This is what you need to come to Hrodna. Circuit, see the runes, ask the priest to tell about the Church-and realize that this is the most real Belarus!
