  • On the island since the 16th century Sviyazhsk preserved unique monument of wooden architecture of the Volga region is Trinity Church. Trinity Church is all that remains of the medieval wooden Island-Castle. About the uniqueness of the temple shows and history of this monument. Unfortunately, looked only from outside. Yes, and the winter was.

  • Date of construction-the year 1551. The first Orthodox Church in the Middle Volga region. The monastery was founded in the late 16th century and originally was located in the north-western part of the Cathedral square of Sviyazhsk. However, after strong fires 1753 and 1759 BC. Ivanovsky Nunnery was transferred to the premises of the disbanded in 1764 year male Troitse-sergiyev monastery, founded in the year 1551. Among the surviving monastic buildings of the most ancient wooden church of Trinity, which is the oldest surviving orthodox temple on the territory of the Republic of Tatarstan. The temple was built in 1551 year simultaneously with the fortress Sviyazhsk. Although the temple was reconstructed several times in the 19th century, for example, instead of bulbous end, however, the main features of it preserved. In Trinity Church have survived to this day wooden sculptures of Savior, the Apostles, etc, more characteristic of the Russian North, than for the Volga region.

  • The Church is notable and unique for not having been used nails in its construction, the woods were all docked and is one of the first of the island. Despite having been erected in the time of Ivan the terrible, is well preserved. It is certainly a landmark and architectural of the island.
