The church is quite nice from the outside not that much to see on the inside. It is free so worth it if you pass by. Afterwards you can go to the top of the embankment and get the view of the city.

Most beautiful church in the city! And one that is always well-maintained. Walk around the church to see a magnificent bell tower, and perhaps climb the hill to make some stunning photos. Inside the church is very interesting too.

Such architectures are rarely meet - is the so-called Stroganov style of 17-18 centuries. There is a lot of children insude. The interior is also very unique. We did not want to leave.
