Tserkov' Spasa na Nereditse, Veliky Novgorod

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.

  • SPASA nereditsa Church is located at 8 km. from Novgorod. It can be reached by car. Bus schedule appeared to wears there 2 times a day. Close is another interesting place-Rjurikovo mound, which is also very I advise to visit. But walking to go far. Note that the open church with 11:00 up to 16:00 hours (from 1 October to 1 April up to 14:00 hours). Thursday, Friday-closed. We, for example, the first time came to Thursday. Had to come yet, but it was worth it. Not only that the Church was built in the 12th century, it still preserved the wonderful unique frescoes, some of which also date back to the 12th century temple for some time served as princely necropolis. Here is buried Duke Athanasius Danilovich, grandson of Alexander Nevsky of Novgorod, and the son of the Vicar of Prince Fedor. Unfortunately, in the years of the World War II shrine was turned into ruins, survived about half of masonry and 15% of the frescoes. Next was a painstaking restoration. But what happened should be a must-see. The temple is one of the locations in Novgorod, which should be a must-see.
