Cathedral of the Virgin of the Sign (Znamensky), Veliky Novgorod

(50+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Beloved by visitors for its pure form, Cathedral of the Virgin of the Sign (Znamensky) was originally built in the 17th century to house the icon it was named after, "Virgin of the Sign." Although this painting was moved to another church in the early 1990s, visitors continue to flock here to appreciate the building's architecture and frescoes covering the interior walls. Pay special attention to a foreboding painting called "The Last Judgment," which covers the entire western wall. If the opportunity arises, do not miss a chance to attend a music concert here--a memorable experience thanks to the building's nearly perfect acoustics.

  • Enough running outside and amazingly beautiful inside. The frescoes have been preserved (very large portion). Especially surprised and amazed "last judgement" on the west wall is completely safe and comprehensible even amateur fresco. In the courtyard you can safely and happily sit out.
