Church of George Victorious, Staraya Russa

5.0
#2 of 10 in Things to do in 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.

  • This is a church, not a Museum! So do not forget ob"ustave. You of course nobody would drive, but still better to observe the "decency".

  • How much do you know icons bozhih mothers? And there are wonderful, awesome old Russian icon of the mother of God. And it is in this church. After the service, but before long it stood kneeling woman praying. I didn't want to disturb her, walked around the Church, looking at the icons. Amazing, struck by its originality. The Church, which is well worth a visit. And to the mother of God we came later. Candle set.
