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.

  • And outwardly the temple is interesting as a combination of layers of different centuries. And inside the special aesthetic world. Decoration of unusual, peculiar. Of course, the main shrine of the temple-list of icons of the mother of God, which has not gained. She is awesome. Just visit the Church to understand that this is not a metaphor. You can write a detective about the history of this image and its lists. So it will be interesting and believers and lovers of antiquity, and simply those who have works of fantasy.

Interesting link temple with F.m. Dostoevsky-George Church was a favorite for the writer, when he lived in that city.
