  • Saw the temple for the first time-a complete delight! I have seen enough and Russian and European Churches, but this was for me a full opening. Given his "neotrestavrirovannyj" view, however, the temple amazes with externally trim and designs, with a height of domes and chapels. Internal painting too astounding beauty and diversity plots. It's really a gem of Russian architectures. I would like to wish that these temples were restored and recovered, it would be a pity to lose such a beauty ...

  • St. John the Baptist Church or Церковь Иоанна Предтечи is a must visit place in Yaroslavl Russia. The church is featured on the 1000-ruble banknote. Very beautiful, next to Volga River
  • St. John the Baptist Church in Tolchkove. Each of us sees this church daily for 1000 roubles banknote. Built in 1671-1687. It is the largest parish church in Yaroslavl and outstanding monument of architecture, Yaroslavl, its high point. The temple is crowned with a whopping fifteen chapters − five large, bulk, and five small, very closely set domes-bulbs on symmetric range. The Church is one of the three galleries of a porch with domoobraznym. All the walls are decorated with tiles and patterns from lekalnogo (shaped) bricks so that smooth places on them. In 1933, the Church community was abolished. In 1936 the factory workers ' victory included a building in its territory, using it as a grain warehouse and chemicals. Now the temple is under the protection of UNESCO. The monument retains the initial forms, only the Central head reworked in the 18th century in the Baroque style. Recommended by UNESCO for foreign tourists to visit.

  • Like the style of red brick, each piece of brick and tile is specially exquisite, each angle is very good-looking (also depends on the force of the photographer, of course), very well worth a visit, south of the river

  • Very beautiful temple. For drawing curves, brick tiles. Depicted on the banknote 1000 rubles. Works in warm season. Previously was unavailable, as was on the territory of the lakakrasochnogo plant.
