  • This temple is a fine example of Baroque architecture monument, located in excellent condition. The decoration of the Temple of magnificent and solemn. A lot of icons with gifts from the Congregation of the temple that says that most icons Chudotvorny.

  • in May of this year, whether by chance, Providence or at the request of his father, was lucky enough to take part in the service in the temple. This is unforgettable! It is impossible and unnecessary to describe as a hike in the shop, restaurant, accommodation in hotel. This is a completely different matter. And if you mess up in life realized that mess up and you need to support, not to collapse. Go to the old church, peering at ancient, namolennye icons, refer to himself and to a higher power and that you should reward. If there is no understanding, if you glozhut doubts and contradictions still to go. Will be good when the priest after the service, come, talk to him. This simple conversation might change your perception of the world.
