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.

  • The chapel stands on the mountain operating with mountains around the chapel opens very even did a beautiful view of the city. Gun shoots every day 12:00 Krasnoyarsk time.

  • Holy place! Opportunity to gain peace of mind. Pray the prayer of the Holy Martyr to serve. Paraskevi. Beautiful view of the city!

  • Great to come here together with the guests-to show how looks almost like a city "on the Palm of your hand". They like to deal with streets, buildings and learn-guess the place where recently. And wonder-rejoice when colour is correct.)) Condition-good weather, transport and warm clothes (there's always wind).
