Armenian church of St. Nicholas

Armenian church of St. Nicholas
The Church was founded in 1820. Since 1890s it has been used by the Armenian community and has become a school. The Armenian Church is hidden deep in the old part of the town, not far from Dervish Monastery. The main feature of the building is a combination of Armenian traditions and Russian classicism. Previously it was a domical basilica, but some parts of the church, namely the dome and the barrel, were destroyed. The church’s fronts have remained in better condition. Near the western entrance, old French writings are visible. On the eastern wall remains an Armenian symbol, a khachkar, which is a carved memorial with an image of the cross. There are currently plans to restore the church.
