  • The Church of St. Elijah the Prophet of God is very beautiful and unusual. He is always different. It can be seen from different sides of the city and is considered one of the main attractions. The most mysterious views of the Temple from the Collections gold shimmer dome and immediately plunge into something brighter. As it stands the majestic Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin. Elijah very ancient temple with a rich history. Experienced different times, but now it was repaired and he became a true decoration of the city.

  • Temple 16 century, it probably says a lot and this alone already determines interest in this temple. Ilyinskaya street got its name from this temple. The temple is situated in a picturesque location at the foot of the Kremlin. History of erecting the temple quite interesting. All this should lead you here for sure ...

  • Great place with interesting history! In during one of the sieges of Nizhny Novgorod on a place of a temple standing tent Nogai murza, who led the siege of the fortress. Virtually no chance of saving it. But there were cannons, which the Russians nobody knew how to use it. From prison with a promise of freedom have taken several Lithuanians, who razumeli in the gun. All night the main Lithuanian master soobrazhal on the trajectory of the shot. Morning shot and BOOM! from the first stroke hits the marquee murza. The remnants of the troops were frightened and ran away. All are happy and having fun. And on this very site almost decided to build the Church of Elijah the Prophet. And the Prophet Elijah on Church tradition is associated with thunder and lightning and calendar coincided. Originally the Church was wooden and only at the end of the 19 century, she became what she looks like now. Old and very beautiful temple. Here I recommend here to come.
