Church of George Victorious, Staraya Russa

4.5
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Staraya Russa
Pay reverence to Saint George, a 3rd-century Roman soldier and Christian martyr at Church of George Victorious. This 15th-century temple was first erected in 1410 CE and features a stone-domed style with four internal porches that are notable against the otherwise-humble stark-white walls with small gold accents. The walls have been restored, with evidence of restoration dating from the 18th century through to the 20th century. A garden surrounds the church, filled with colorful blooms in season. The church still holds regular services, so be prepared to join parishioners eager to pay their respects to the late military saint.

  • No, it is not necessary to enter the existing cathedral with excursion purposes. I wanted to see a huge takeaway icon stored inside. The icon was looked at, but the feeling that they had broken in was left. People who come to the temple will pray, beggars at the gate, a flock of stray dogs. It's not a place for tourism. However, in addition to the icon, in the summer you can admire the beautiful flowers planted in the courtyard of the church. In general, everything is done soundly and neatly and more like a small monastery.

  • There are a large number of churches and temples in Old Rousse. This church is located next to the Dostoevsky House Museum and it was this church that the writer's family went to this church. Visiting the museum be sure to visit this church. A significant relic - the icon of the virgin of Starorukovskaya - is stored here. It is quite a large icon and is rarely seen in other temples.
