Church of George Victorious, Staraya Russa

Pay reverence to Saint George, a 3rd-century Roman soldier and Christian martyr at Church of George Victorious. This 15th-century temple was first erected in 1410 CE and features a stone-domed style with four internal porches that are notable against the otherwise-humble stark-white walls with small gold accents. The walls have been restored, with evidence of restoration dating from the 18th century through to the 20th century. A garden surrounds the church, filled with colorful blooms in season. The church still holds regular services, so be prepared to join parishioners eager to pay their respects to the late military saint.

  • Passing by stopped opposite the Church of St. George. Former Temple family of Dostoevsky. There is something compelling in its white walls and black dome.

  • This is not the first time come to Old Russu and come to this temple of XV century. The temple is very cosy, namolennoe place, mural created by the samples of paintings from Victor Vasnetsov Kiev St. Vladimir Cathedral. Chetyrehjarussnyj wooden carved iconostasis 19 century. Especially attracts, fascinates with the icon of the mother of God "old Russian", or rather a list with the wonder-working image, made "a measure moderately" and 1788 in Tikhvin, where was an icon. The fate of the icons are very interesting. Icon very respect.
