  • In October this year, we visited this shrine is near the market and surrounded by a cozy shaded garden. In the Church very much ancient icons were very memorable icon of Christ the Savior, God with a Crown of thorns on his head. If you stand in front of the image, it has closed eyes. And if the distance-it opens eyes. At the temple was a service. I asked Deacon called Church. He very friendly with a smile answered. Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace

  • Church of the assumption is valid. Her visit has left pleasant emotions. The friendly woman at the entrance, exit, which answered all the questions and told how to consecrate a little lick Virgin, ancient icons and frescoes, nor with the incomparable atmosphere of serenity and goodness, the smell of some mystery and antiquity. Absolutely do not regret that we talked to this guide is a nice place.
