  • Very beautiful church, typical Stroganov Baroque. Rich carving on the outside, just as rich on the inside. The church is so richly decorated that it looks like a gingerbread house. In sunlight, it simply shines with gold crosses in the color of domes, as if covered with precious stones. Although it should be noted that this is not a historical view of this church. Iconostasis, and the church itself, was preserved in such a good form because in Soviet times there was a museum.

  • A very beautiful church that struck with its architecture. Striking stylistic eclecticism. There are porticos from classical architecture, and baroque elements of windows, and mini-columns. Very beautiful, gingerbread view. Inside is also beautiful, but, as I suspect, a new-found. And too much gold, that's a clear bust.
