I liked the inside of this church a lot better than the outside. (I don't like brick very much.) Brightly coloured frescoes are painted everywhere.

If you are walking around the city, make sure you check this church out. Building in good condition and some nice icons inside. Please don't go if you expect something kitsch like St. Basil cathedral, as this is much more traditional.

I've always thought this is an unfinished church, but it is not. Just a dark-looking building in a strange place. Disappointing.

Old church has good condition and shape. Small but inside paintings are very nice. One of the nice and historical building in the city to visit.

Since it's one of the first real buildings in town, it's a must see. Woman have to cover their hair. You can buy candles outside and light them for a gone one, for a wonder or the health of somebody It's not super impressive, but...More
