  • Returning from Bernove in Staritsa, decided, on the proposal of the Guide visit Krasnoe to see an amazing Church. The road is awful-the pit, ditch, but surprising it's nothing. You know that in Russia the twin evils of ... One way or another, but we drove to the temple, come out and razinuli their mouths. Such beauty! The Temple in the village of Red is built on money of the family Poltorackih and is a copy of the Chesme Church in ST. PETERSBURG, authored by famous architect y. Felten. The differences are only in the decoration, and the interior trim is quite different. Yes, of course, the Cathedral in St. Petersburg is decorated with thinner, sleeker, sculptures and bas-reliefs are worked out perfect down to the smallest detail. In red is all a bit rougher, topornee, if you like, well, it is and village church, rather than a Metropolitan Cathedral. But the temple is beautiful, the impression is very strong. The Interior itself is not. The Cathedral painted stripes, which converge at the top under the dome. The color is very bright orange. It seems that you are inside a giant Tangerine. And it's great! Nowhere seen anything like it. And even in the Church are allowed to sing. Acoustics-ideal. And you can for 50 rubles to climb the Bell Tower and call bells. In short, mass pleasures in one place. So it's worth a close eye on a terrible road and come in Red. You will love.

  • The road is disgusting, but worth the wait to see this miracle. We were lucky and the temple was Granny, who told about the history of it. Incredible acoustics!
