Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Chapel, Krasnoyarsk
(4.8/5 based on 340+ 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. Work out when and for how long to visit Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Chapel and other Krasnoyarsk attractions using our handy Krasnoyarsk family vacation planner.

  • Personal character and place that characterizes the whole Krasnoyarsk. From the chapel you can see all the Krasnoyarsk and its surroundings! Besides, it is not far from the Centre, you can say in one central area, microdistrict "Pokrovka"!

  • do not attempt to walk to the chapel on foot from the city centre, in the fall, and even more so in winter. It stands on a hill, and along the way from Central-only garages, workshops, dirt, smoke and dirt. In General, as you can imagine, I did not.
