We spent less than 30 minutes here, but learned lots. The inside was fantastic. My favorite was the metal bible cover. It was so interesting...so many details...I loved it! Peaceful little spot in the middle of a cute little town.

The church door was open so we entered to experience all the beautiful old Russian Orthodox icons (sacred paintings of saints displayed around the altar). Get off the beaten path and enjoy this lovely little old church.
