  • 17 century church with murals-unique. The most beautiful place on the shore near the Tvertsa borisoglebsky monastery. Service passing only in summer, but the Church is always open to the public. Inside you can buy handmade souvenirs. Current renovations are taking place at the expense of the loan commitment. Visit the Church and help possible.

  • Perhaps put this extraordinary wooden old-Voznesenskaya Church (or the Tikhvin icon of the mother of God) on the 2-nd place among the monuments of Torzhok (after borisoglebsky Monastery). The Church was first mentioned back in the year 1653. As usual among wooden buildings exposed to different risks, the Church has been repeatedly destroyed and then restored. If I am not mistaken, what we see today dates back to the early 18th century. At the end of 20-th century the Church was restored. While in the Soviet period, plans for the transfer of the Church to a new location, fortunately, were not implemented. The Church is a divine services are spent here. When approached, it seemed that all closed (the Church year, and frost in the street under 20 degrees). It turned out that it is possible to get inside and admire the albeit modest but highly uncommon situation, with timbered walls covered with frost. Highly recommend. To support such a worthy object bought locally produced original souvenirs that are sold before entering the main part of the temple.
