Victory Memorial

This is a memorial of the famous war events. If you miss it, you may not lost some thing important. Big space and symbolic exhibition are not teaching, not emotional

Came on a short trip to Kursk from Moscow to visit some friends who are studying here. I could not enter due to time constrain but however it is a beautiful Cathedral even from the outside. Take pictures of it especially around 3pm and the sun will give you a wonderful background.

Resurrection Elijah's Church

Reviewed By evoinel - Tomsk, Russia

The Church is located in the centre of the city. People usually notice the reflection of the Church in the plateglass facade of the nearby bank.
It is very beautiful outside and inside. The interior paintings of the beginning of the XXth century were made by an icon painter from Moscow - Nicolai Epanechnikov on the basis of the scetches by the famous Russian artist Victor Vasnetsov.
There are many holy relics in the Church, including those of St. John Chrysostom, St. Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra in Lycia, St. Andrew, the Apostle, St. Seraphim of Sarov, etc.
Whether you visit the Church to pray of to marvel at the architecture and interior design, you'll enjoy it.

Неописуемой красоты собор на два этажа. Золотые купола. Собор очень красив как снаружи так и внутри. Внутри очень много икон и фресок. Своя ухоженная территория с цветами и деревьями. Недалеко от центра. Приятных путешествий.
