Church of George Victorious, Staraya Russa
(5/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This temple during 600 years closed only twice and in a very short time. Even in the years of the World War II shrine was opened. In the Temple of two unique icons: the biggest throughout Christianity, old Russian icon Mother of God and the smallest Tsaregradsky (located to the right of the Staraya Russa). The two wonder-working icons. To Constantinople to seek help in the treatment of babies.

  • This is a simple temple architecture is visited by everyone who has visited the Museum of Dostoevsky, and all because the ancient temple, built in the early 15th century, visited the great writer in the seven summer periods, which he spent with his family on the shore Porus'i in Staraya Russa. Immediately obvious that temple really vintage, note the thick rough walls and narrow Windows on the second floor. The appearance of absolutely does not tally with the interiors, and are therefore not limited by external inspection, and go inside. This temple was the only one that survived during the war years, and did not close during the years of atheism. And that is why only here are all ancient icons of the city, rescued from those who have been abused churches Old Russa. Iconostasis in the St. George Temple is gorgeous, richly decorated and with many ancient icons. Happily looked at the painting of the Church. Recommend to visit this 600-year-old church!

  • Just liked the decoration of the small but pleasant Church! Outside of pure flowers. The Church often visited Dostoevsky literary family.
