Abandoned Religious And Cultural Heritage, Part II

Posted on July 8, 2013 by team


Yukhtinskaya parish does not exist today. It was situated on the territory of the Yaroslavl province and its terriotory belonged to the Sheremetyevs family. When the members of the family lived there there were built more than fifteen churches, some of them have been preserved up to date despite the fact they are more than 300 years old.

The churches we visited last time could be seen here.

This village is called Gertsino today. The temple you see on the picture above stands on the hill and is known to have existed already in 1780. This temple of the Sheremetyevs is built in the style of Catherine’s baroque.
