  • Absolutely stunning, unique Temple! Wafting from the walls of the past centuries. The most ancient on the territory of Crimea, and perhaps throughout the Kievan Rus. Monument of Byzantine architecture. Very impressive, be sure to visit!

  • Walking through the Centre of Kerch, very hard not to notice the Church of John the Baptist. The walls of the temple are very ancient, the inside walls are painted also large number of icons.
