  • Temple-gingerbread, so it looks from the outside. It is a pity that the restoration of this temple did people indifferent to history. How many corrupted! As relaxed and mentally inside the temple, what bright icons! Thanks, and to all the clergy who have made efforts for the preservation of this temple.

  • Unusually beautiful Stroganovskuû Church should definitely show visitors with the story of her remarkable story. Pride takes over the bottom, what a miracle might not appear in capitals, and even give a name to a destination in architecture
