  • Impressively lit during the evening and nighttime, ornate turrets and carvings can be seen from the exterior. One of two Simeon Churches and this church’s history stems way back to 1625.  more »
  • Small temple Orthodox in honor of San Simeón Estilita, or Simeón the elder who was born in the 4th century and was famous for his excessive rigor in religious practices. He spent the last 37 years of his life tied to a column. He was struck by the place in which it was located outside the circuit of temples. Inside is very simple, with a wooden iconostasis. I found a couple of women saying their prayers with a penuelo in the head. Luckily I had one in the portfolio, and I put it as a sign of respect. A place where they breathed much peace.

  • I remembered this Church of St. Simeon the stylite on povarskaya Street for the films "the fate of the resident" (1970) and "Ivan VASILEVICH menyaet professiyu" (1973). Here is the 29/12 passing through the chef's Street decided to personally visit this attraction. To date, the Church of St. Simeon Stylites was left alone on the chef's street-all other churches were destroyed in the 20th century. Within the walls of the Church, I saw the surviving white gravestones of 17th-18th centuries.
