  • You must go inside. Very beautiful orthodox church. I stay without words, but I see a lot already. My guide told me about church fundament. Everything is built on oak trunk. Like Venice. 
  • Impression. It seems that the Catholic Church because of the colors, but he is Orthodox. Many pregnant women, because the temple is dedicated to the birth of children. All icons (in the temple numerous variations of the icon of the mother and baby) festooned with jewels. A pleasant place. Night lights up nicely, saw him with another part of the city.
