Paraskeva Pyatnitsa Chapel, Krasnoyarsk

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.

  • Gorgeous views at sunset ... Love this place, it attracts many couples in love to admire the gorgeous sunset and the night views Krasnoyarsk. The whole Krasnoyarsk will appear before you in all its glory. From there you can examine everything, narrow streets, for which you do not have long walked, you can find your House and look at it from a bird's-eye view. You can see lovers walking along the river Kacha and feed bread to the ducks. This whole atmosphere very breathtaking and touches, I want to go back there again and again ...

  • In Krasnoyarsk were with friends by accident. To visit all the sights were observed on 10-minute ruble banknote. Chapel of St. Paraskeva Friday just too shows on the banknote. Were strong sibirskij Moroz, so all the trees around were covered with beautiful frost. A fabulous spectacle. You can put a candle in the Chapel, but right next to it sold souvenir 10-minute rublyovka, on paper, which prints real money, they only fit ten times more. As it turned out, it's a good souvenir from Krasnoyarsk. From the chapel overlooks the city, but from the words of local old-timers, very often in a haze of Krasnoyarsk. Just below the stands sentry gun that shoots every day at 12:00. The way back too interesting, as is the Gypsy village that interesting benchmarks of colorful houses.

  • A fantastic view of Krasnoyarsk and a lovely chapel. A must for visitors to this city.
  • UH. Simply breathtaking! The whole family come here almost every month. And every month I want to come here again. At the top of the mountain offer wonderful views of the city. Better to come in the evening when it is dark. The city is revealed in all its glory. In summer a lot of people. It so happens that there is nowhere to park the car. Young people love to come here at midnight. Next there is always Crew officers.

  • Absolutely worth a visit even if you only stop a day here, but take the time to walk to see a beautiful traditional wooden houses! Center City takes 45 minutes to mount. If the Chapel is not a crazy interest, the view is exceptional.

  • 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.
