    Strict and laconic outside and unreal beautiful inside Cathedral simply amazed! S'emka inside the forbidden images no, but it is, perhaps, one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Russia! Candles need to buy in the monastery shop before entering the Cathedral.

    The grandiose Cathedral, dedicated to Alexander Nevsky, on the territory of Novo-Tikhvin monastery. Cathedral have an uneasy history-for a long time, he was excommunicated from the Church, and in the 90-ies was returned to the monastery.

    Does anyone know how I love the wall paintings, frescoes, murals. And level of skill with which this is done. Have to come here when there is no service, and with binoculars for three hours. The temple amazes me indefinitely, each my arrival in Yekaterinburg I come here. There are no casual details. It is a monument to a different sort of masters and craftsmen, Rainbow of talents, the whole palette of decorative-applied art. Stone carving, icon painting, mosaic and stone mosaic floor, frescoes, goldwork embroidery, casting and filigree on the lampadah, wooden carvings. admiration, not to convey in words, only you and ahaesh. Even one of our traveling companion-a very militant atheist-walked with pleasure as the Museum. And usually do not zatashhish in the temple. Those who are versed in the painting, it will be interesting, that in addition to traditional subjects (miracles) shrine painted images of all saints, in the land of the Russian beamed. And TC it big, this variety of little where you meet. Individual attention is worth Church shop and refectory. Mother great masters and very good businessmen. Never leave without buying anything. Huge selection of monastic herbal cosmetics, table linens with embroidery, large selection of icons, interesting publication in the book section, delicious pies and cakes. the only pity is that no album, dedicated to the Interior of the temple. Long wants this.
