Here there is a church shop (ikonnaya lavka -- icon... More

This church was originally built in 1913 and for the most time it's been the main church in Novosibirsk. It's been open during Soviet time except 1937-1944 when it was closed and converted into a grain storage. However, it's been through some major updates in the last 20-30 years, so there is not left of the original structure. It doesn't... More
