At the coast of Black Sea, see 16th century iconostasis at St Stephens Church, the UNESCO Heritage Site. The eastern part of three-nave basilica dates from 11th century, and presents its oldest part.

  • The church built at the turn of the IX and X in the Basilica of the three nawowa on the basis of stone and brick. Originally dedicated to the BLESSED VIRGIN MARY. The beautiful frescoes and magnificent iconostasis, the pulpit and throne of the bishops. The best preserved from this period.
