Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Chapel, Krasnoyarsk

(4.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Perched on the top of a hill, Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Chapel offers views of the city. Notice the padlocks on the fence of the observation deck, placed by wedding couples as a declaration of their love for each other. The small, octagonal, brick chapel in Old Russian style replaced a decaying wooden one in 1855. Look for a granite memorial plaque on the east front of the building commemorating the day in 1887 when Russian scientist and radio inventor Aleksander Popov observed the solar eclipse from the chapel.

  • An architectural monument, which is visible from almost all parts of the city, this monument is depicted on banking banknote.

  • Beautiful views of the city center of Krasnoyarsk. Traditionally at exactly twelve o'clock comes a shot out of a cannon.

  • With this Chapel overlooking the city in the evening, so a bunch of machines and love couples. Recommended visiting time-evening-night because the city paved with lights.
