  • This is the only Temple of orthodoxy, where prescribed in fresco all Orthodox holidays. This temple at 1000-ruble banknote.

  • St. John the Baptist Church not far from our House, and when guests come to us-this is the first point of sightseeing. Does not remain indifferent! The feeling of power, ancient times, some even magic is breathtaking. I note only that the temple is not valid, works as a Museum from May to October (the entrance is about 70 rubles for the citizens of Russia), and would be perfect to go there with knowledgeable, talented guide-you can make many discoveries. But during the winter, you get a lot of amazing vibrant photos-this is a great place for photo shoots!

  • This church is very beautiful. No wonder her image posted on 1000 banknote. Consider its facades can be hours. Very richly decorated, but inside everything is much worse. The murals are beautiful, but a bit dark in the temple. Iconostasis requires recovery. Generally inside the temple not to get in winter, in spring and autumn. It belongs to the Museum (to visit inside you need to buy a ticket), and is often closed. This is done to protect the murals from destruction. But in any case reach the Temple stands, but be prepared to bad driveway.
