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

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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Veliky Novgorod trip simple and quick.

  • Znamensky Cathedral is directly opposite another famous Temple of the Church of the Transfiguration of Christ. Built in the late 17th century, the temple is not valid. Inside the great wall painting of the 17th century unfortunately, outwardly the temple looks depressingly, requires restoration. But despite this I recommend to visit the temple and enjoy the beautiful frescoes. Open temple with 10:00 to 17:00. The day off Tuesday, Wednesday and the first Thursday of the month.

  • View of the Cathedral caused huge regret that such fine monuments of the past are in such a State of disrepair. This Cathedral deserved a better fate. Inside, unfortunately, do not hit, was closed.

  • Temple works which Museum, entrance fee 80 or 50 rubles, judging from the poster there are concerts. A lot of the frescoes inside! Powerful impression even at very bad condition of the temple and the territory. It is sad that such beauty in such a shambles.
