  • Church is metochion of the Monastery Pantelejmonova in Moscow. The Church was built in the late 16th century on a hill in the suburb behind the river Yauza River, where in those days lived and worked the potters and blacksmiths. The Church has a lovely fenced area. Peace and quiet reign, though it is located in the heart of bustling Moscow. In the Temple of stored particles of relics of Saints. A beautiful bell tower and tented outdoor Gallery-open arcade. There are pretty strict inscriptions about decent clothing, makeup, use of mobile phones.
