  • Visited the Church of the sign of the most Holy Theotokos in Dubrovtsy 11.12.2016, are very satisfied. The temple is very peculiar and interesting both outside and inside. Inside a very lot of stucco, which is unusual for a typical Russian church, it is very interesting. Statues and bas-reliefs above the first tier from the outside, better seen in binoculars. Very useful for health were slides for children, not for nothing that we ourselves have taken vatrushku for the youngest daughter. There the Homestead you can ride for children with slides, if you want to snegokatah, if you want to enter the tube-slope. Around this awesome winter landscape, BEAUTY!

  • When they showed me a picture of the temple, I thought that it's somewhere in Europe, but I was pleasantly surprised that this temple is situated in the suburbs. You can describe, but better to come and look at the wonderful beauty.
