Tserkov' Spasa na Nereditse, Veliky Novgorod

(5/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Visit one of Russia's oldest churches at Tserkov' Spasa na Nereditse. Built in 1198, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was once covered with frescoes created by 10 artists before its destruction during World War II. Although the government continues to rebuild the church, most of the frescoes remain lost. Visitors can see some traces of these past paintings during their visit--it's a good idea to let a guide show you around for the most informative experience. You can recognize the church by its unique architecture--a modest-sized, cubed building topped with a domed ceiling. A visit to Tserkov' Spasa na Nereditse represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Veliky Novgorod vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • Classical architecture, which can be enjoyed indefinitely. The more so that this miracle is restored after WWII. Beautiful at any time of the year. Recommend to visit.

  • A long-cherished dream to visit this church. Read a lot, heard. and now, finally, have visited this summer. While getting on their car, because by this monument of UNESCO no differently does not get lost, we stopped at some dead-end, where, apparently, we are not hit. Locals are tired, probably all explain here and placed this inscription:): "there is no Road!" no transport for people, nor pointers to independent travelers, nor roads as such to the Church when great trails. When we traveled, the road after a small summer blue dilute, we even on good Japanese car barely passed. ... Ashamed of our authorities, that this is how develop tourism. Decent objects that are interesting and even important visit, much rather get them another try! In short, if you are not afraid of hardship-go for it! The monument-excellent and contained it very well, but ... close your eyes at everything else and if you can get all the inconvenience
