  • We happened to be in Bulzi by accident. Seeing the blue domes, we came to see up close. We are very glad that we learned about this temple, which is now actively restored by caring people. We were greeted with unusually affable. We managed to listen to the bell ringing, performed by the mother of the abbot. We wish from the bottom of our hearts to find the means to ebb the missing bells. The place is worth a visit and a soul to rest!

  • The village began its existence in the XVIII century. According to the old-timers, the village was founded in 1710 year. According to the legend, the name of the village "Bulzi" was received on behalf of Tatarina "Bulz", exiled from Kazan for the horse-breeding ("parishes and churches of the Yekaterinburg Diocese". Edition of Yekaterinburg Diocese, 1902, Printing house F. K. Chomutov). In the 19TH century, Bulzi had only − 600 farms. In 1993, there were 460 yards. The main attraction of the village is the Church of the Holy Theotokos. The temple in 1831 was laid in the centre of the village, on a high place, and in 1841 it was completed by construction and consecrated.  During the SOVIET era the temple was closed and all the icons were destroyed. The premises were used for storage of grain and other agricultural needs. After the era of the Soviet Union was abandoned. The building is badly destroyed but, nevertheless, the temple is visited by tourists. At the moment restoration works are underway to restore the shrine.
