Church of Spasa-na-Iliene, Veliky Novgorod

Small, white, and charming, Church of Spasa-na-Iliene bears delicate details on the exterior, and inside shelters masterpieces of the 13th-century painter Theophanes the Greek. During World War II the church reportedly served as a Nazi workstation for machine guns, and thus the colorful frescoes have been restored and in some places reproduced. Climb the wooden staircase to the mezzanine to take in the beauty of the frescoes, and then continue upwards to a landing under the dome. The church lies at the end of a long, picturesque boulevard lined with apple trees.

  • Objazateleno to initiation, Church on the street Rollin (bride of the city), the year 1374, 1378 by theophanes the Greek Total 40 churches painted. Kostroma-Yaroslavl masters built Pont Tuesday off. Closed in the rain and snow, but at any moment, even for an hour if the Weather improves-open or closed, you should call. The murals saved only under the dome.

  • For those who wants to visit this church get ready to pay the money, although it is not a church, it is a commercial Museum. Although nowhere is written that it is a Museum, not a church. Why deceive people wonder ...

  • Cozy, some absolutely home (probably due to the small size, wooden walls and stairs and something else-the elusive.) Church. Oh and the frescoes of Theophanes the Greek, of course! Unexplained harmony. Perhaps my delight (human, far from all the churches) are connected with the fact that the travel plans were Khibiny, Kizhi and Valaam, Novgorod stopped accidentally, to sleep, to not go for the dark to Moscow. So that's it specifically neraskrashennyj Novgorod and white Savior on Ilyina had made the biggest impression! Especially in comparison with a bright, unnatural color and perhaps the rest of the Vallamu (in one of the skits we were asked to remove their shoes, because there is made a warm floor ...).
