  • The Church is located in the village of Lykhny. It is noteworthy that it is preserved in its original form with 10 centuries. And has continued its activities even during Soviet times. Inside are amazing murals on the walls. Near a small market, where you can build.

  • Is not the best time, probably for a long time will restore this temple. For lovers of ancient ruins will be interesting to see.
