  • Built in 1890-1896 for the workers of Kreenholm. One of the few buildings that were not damaged during the WWII. The time has passed and now it's surrounded by Soviet-time apartment buildings. Beautiful cathedral. Definitely worth visiting. I went there in the morning during the worship, so women had to cover their heads. Fortunately there was a box with headscarves.
  • The festive ceremony of the cornerstone of the Church of the Ascension of Christ was held on August 5, 1890, and the cornerstone was consecrated by the bishop Arseni (Brjantsev) of Riga and Miitavi in ​​the presence of Emperor Alexander III and Emperor Maria Fjodorovna. Alexander III placed the cornerstone personally. The design of the Byzantine church that reminded the Greco-Greek was the architect of the plan, architect Pavel Ališ, who worked in the Kreenholm Manufaktur from 1888-1907. The main building material is the red and yellow bricks made at the Kulga factory belonging to the Kreenholm manufactory. The foundation, stairs and decorations were made of Finnish granite. Afanasyev was the author of three-threaded carved carved and overstocked iconostasis, but the icons were written at the Dikarijov Workshop at Moscow Icon Museum. In 1912, the paintings of the dwarf drum, the croutons and the main daisies were completed. The painting "The Lord of the World" is best preserved in these paintings, the rest is still worse, but the painting of the eastern daisies has been destroyed altogether. The lobes are the traditional images of the apostles and evangelists Matteus, Markus, Luke and John. On November 17, 1896, the main head of the Ascension of Christ was celebrated in the presence of Arseni, Archbishop of Riga and Militaire, in the presence of the Governor of Estonia, J. Skalon. The north altar of all the saints was consecrated on June 1, 1897. In the middle of the mid-20th century, this altar was consecrated after the repair of the holy Emperor Nikolaos. Among the icons of the sanctuary, the iconic icon of the holy Nicolaos and the "Devil's Name" icon of the Godhead could be highlighted. Attention is also drawn to the large, late-Gothic cruciform form, made by the late 17th-century master Elert Thiele, for the Church of St George in Jerusalem, located on the left. The form of the cross was in the Chronicle of the Transfiguration of the Lord and lived happily over the 1944 bombing attack. After the Second World War, the Resurrection Church was blown away in Narva, the only healed sanctuary, and on January 20, 1958, it was renamed the main hero. On the 100th anniversary, the church was thoroughly renovated. The lower church, which was consecrated to Serafim, was also remodeled to Saarov's wagon, which had the first post-war Laid Service in 1945. On November 16, 1996, the Lower Church was ordained by the Bishop according to the order of Tallinn and the whole Estonian Archbishop of Kornelius.
