Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Chapel, Krasnoyarsk

(380 reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Chapel and other Krasnoyarsk attractions using our handy Krasnoyarsk family vacation planner.

  • Chapel of St. Paraskeva-Friday is the place, where destiny led. And when I learned this symbolic meaning of Shrine, it was simply amazed! As it was explained to us that here the portal between God and human beings, and if with prayer and faith ask what all will happen.

  • The chapel in the late evening looks especially fabulous and attractive. Lookout city is visible at a glance. The beauty of what you say here, but it's better to see everything with your own eyes, of course! I would again visited with pleasure there!

  • Quite the little chapel. Room the size of a kitchen. Honestly not much impressed. But it's worth on the Hill, overlooking the city. Correctly that there are ramps, you can go with a sidecar. Around all arranged as it should be.

  • A fantastic view of Krasnoyarsk and a lovely chapel. A must for visitors to this city.
  • One of the three attractions in Krasnoyarsk, drawn on the desjatirubljovoj banknote. Be sure to visit and photograph with Bill. A beautiful view of the city at night. Monument of architecture. Minus! Inside the temple, and the larjok.

  • Great item from the attractions of Krasnoyarsk paving walk from Dubenskomu, or from the city centre, climbing the stairs to the Chapel Hill. And climbing the stairs can and see why Krasnoyarsk called Krasnoyarsk.
