Church of the Resurrection

The Church of the Resurrection is an Orthodox church, a beautiful monument of wooden vernacular architecture with characteristics of classicism. It was built in 1854 from wood and in 1866 the bell tower was erected in front of the church. The rectangular building made of solid wood is covered with a gable roof with a hipped roof over the altar. The main facade is characterised by a stylised portico with four columns, above the pediment of which rises an onion-shaped dome on an octagonal light drum. During the construction of the temple, important deviations from the design were made: instead of two domes, one was placed on the front façade, a portico was erected and the projected dimensions were changed.
