Church of St. Elijiah the Prophet (Ilya Prorok)

  Sovetskaya pl. 7     more than a year ago
The interiors here are easily some of the most bright and beautiful you will see in all of Russia. Frescoes, with a distinct blue which is typical to the Golden Ring region, cover every possible surface, soaring all over the walls and roofs and telling well known stories from the Bible. They remain so marvelously preserved due to extensive delicate restoration during the last century and to the fact that the church is closed during colder months (October until early/mid April). The church's amazing acoustics also add to the enchanting historic feeling of the place.
