The church is closed until the end of 2016 due to the restoration work.

This is a marvellous church which is distinctive for the mature and complete architectural design. It is a fine example of the architecture of the early 15th century.

The church is made of large limestone blocks while its fine decorative elements are made of brick. The building is not plastered, which makes it look like Russian churches used to do centuries ago. Its trefoil arches made of aspen boards and the red colour of unplastered facades provides an amazing colour effect, and thus, the church perfectly harmonizes with the landscape. Its 16th century iconostasis is displayed in the exposition Russian Icon of 11th – 19th centuries in the Collection of Novgorod State Museum in the Kremlin. The church is open for visit in spring and summer.

Hours: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily except Mondays and Tuesdays (April 1 - September 30).
