  • The Church is in a State of neglect, which fully reflects its history. 12 21 buildings, inside is empty. Everything is lost, especially painting.

  • Yes, a very ancient church one hundred years have passed since the Rus was baptized and the Church have already built. 12 century, construction was attended by Greeks, and style decorated the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople.

  • Dates back to the 12th century. First House Church, later the Prince of Smolensk-Polish Catholic Church. Burned in the great patriotic war 1812, destroyed in the great patriotic war. Restored, lost the original appearance. And yet very authentically looks: strict proportions, minimal exterior decoration, ancient brick-plinthite. Inside the more than modest, not to say poorly. The murals were lost and not yet recovered. There was a feeling that the Church is lurking in a troubled anticipation.

  • One of the three churches of the pre-Mongol period. Previous commenter not topic-where there's a mismatch of decor and the building of the Church? There the miraculous icon of the Iveron mother of God. A good community with Abbot. Recommend

  • A very old church. everything is impregnated with the spirit of antiquity.

  • The oldest church in Central Russia outside of Novgorod and Pskov, a year older than Moscow (1146). What a wonderful, reached our days without actually rebuilding: Classic before cross-domed shrine. Inside, nothing interesting there is that demonstration of how ill-equipped the old church under modern Russian-Orthodox decor.
