  • Go past the Church is impossible. Walking through the Christmas Street necessarily see. Beautiful, bright! Beautiful views from all sides.

  • Outwardly this bright Church located at Christmas Street and built in the early 18th century in Baroque style. Decoration of the city and the street. To view her inside must climb the stairs (entrance is on top). Inside is quite a traditional atmosphere, yielding an external impression. Recommend Church is located in a pretty well-kept condition.

  • Christmas Church looks precious carved casket. Unheard of lush white stone carvings is the vine, flowers, apples, pears, pomegranates, shell and pinstripes — covers its walls a solid carpet. Compared to the luxurious interior of the Church's external decoration looks relatively modestly. Instead, the iconostasis is something striking. His fine carving buxom exclusively and colorful painting simply staggering. Icons are painted in the manner of the beginning of the 18th century. There is a legend associated with Peter first. But you can read about it on the Internet. Review to describe all the advantages of this church.
