St. John the Baptist Church reviews
It is worth taking public transport or a shared taxi to visit this place but I don't recommend paying to see the interior, unless you want to skip other entrances of old churches in Russia! more »
It is worth taking the bus to see this amazing church. Beautiful frescoes everywhere. A bit overwhelming but not to be missed. more »
Just awesome place to visit.
In the territory of Yaroslavl a huge number of churches, operating, restored, closed and destroyed. To bypass all in one day is simply unreal, but after long walk on the Kremlin and quay, it was wanted to see such church, similar to which it is not to find in other areas. The choice fell on the church of John Baptist. Why her: 1-one of the oldest churches (1649-1650g), made in the Yaroslavl style of architecture 2-Convenient location (8 minutes by car from the Kremlin and on the way to Rostov) 3-See this church when we get the PO on 1000 banknote)) There were at the end of April 2019year. The road to the church is cleared, there is parking, there are spotlights, apparently the church is illuminated. Near the industrial area with factories and the local river. The church itself in a deplorable state-izraztsy beaten, on brick walls traces of inscriptions. Inside could not get: The church is open from 10-17, but from May to October, in good weather (apparently flowing roof). But we were not disappointed, though we did not see it from the inside.
