Autumn is a time of cloudy and gloomy weather, and to feel the atmosphere in a proper way, we decided to go to a really atmospheric place. One of abandoned churches near Yaropolets, which was built in 1780-s, fits the concept very well.

The Kazan Our Lady Icon’s Church ia a unique landmark of XVIII century. The two domes are identical to each other, as well as the temple and the mausoleum under them.

Here are some copies of the church draft dated by about 1770 – 1780-s.

I hope your life is now complete.

It’s so sad to see so much of this beautiful architecture in ruins…

Amazing stuff like always !!

it’s heartbreaking.

[possible_flamebyte] “In 1917 a hurricane teared the crosses away from the domes.” That´s a sign from abowe even i actually believe will tell us something…

[/possible_flamebyte]

there’s no GOD in russia anymore

The true face of Communist “Cultural Policy”.

Aw, c’mon CZenda, why are you always bashin’ Communism? Religion has caused more misery by far.

Been to the place my self its stunning place.

Nice set of pictures

Thank you for this wonderful site. I especially like the photographs of old architecture. Fascinating and beautiful.

This whole site should be mapped,every detail and sold to a video game production house….just an idea…

It’s always thought provoking to see a building that was used for perhaps hundreds of years, then just abandoned.

All the religions should be forbidden so these churches should be destroyed as well as any religious items. Until this will happen humans will not be free, but only enslaved by dogma’s and religious “fables”.
