  • Actually, all churches probably beautiful. But here is really a Pearl merchant Christmas Street decoration. Built on a money merchant Stroganova. His mansion is located a little further down the street. The Church generously decorated with carvings and white stone. The clock on its Tower at one time broken, their long time nobody could repair it. While the case is not quite yet come from junior and. Kulibin. So that the Church is really beautiful and with an interesting history. Recommend to visit.

  • By such beauty is not to be held, no one, no matter how it was not faith! Lower was a merchant city, and merchants tried to perpetuate the memory of himself and knew a lot about beauty! No doubt-this ornament of Nizhny Novgorod! It looks beautiful from the Volga River, that from any angle on the shore, and be on a pretty Street, in the historic part of the city
