  • If you choose the Santa-the most interesting attraction, this Great Church is a masterpiece of architecture at the turn of the century. A terrific combination of external and internal decoration. Undoubtedly, the temple should be included among the masterpieces of architecture not only of Lipetsk oblast, Russia.

  • Represents a complex: Temple in honor of Alexander Nevsky and Mikhail of Tver, the Royal Chapel, the House of charity society, Horugvinoscev. Up and was built in honor of 300 anniversary of the reign of the House of Romanov for funds honorary citizen of merchant Zausajlova. Beauty and grace: vyzolochennye Dome, mosaics, Crystal Cross, washed by water and illuminated, ceramic stunning iconostasis, technical achievements of that time (heating, water, electricity, etc.) are all talking about how much labor, love, money, invested it when you create upon recovery in our time. I am glad that porushennaja beauty once again shines like a diamond in the precious rim and tells us about the greatness of the descendants, Aristokratizme, Nobility of the former Russia.

  • This original iconostasis I haven't seen anywhere else. IT IS CERAMIC. Covered with icing. How it managed to recover-a great success for us. Indeed, in Soviet times, the temple was a warehouse. Preserved floors made of cast iron. Beautiful icons. The whole temple as if lit from within. I advise to visit.
