The chapel is located on a hill which you can access most conveniently by car, and you have to walk up after parking. The chapel itself is small, there is an old lady taking care of the opening and closing times. Must visit when you are in Krasnoyarsk

This chapel is very famous in Krasnoyarsk, and many couples come there to take wedding pictues. This chapel also stars on the 10 rubel. There is very nice view from there on the city, and the chapel has been recently painted and they're building a new road there.

Graduation or wedding, it's inevitable you'll stop here at some point and make cool pictures. Amount of people who visited inside of chapel is much less.

I guess everyone who visited Russia for the last 20 years knows this chapel. I couldn't find something interesting like an age of a chapel or unusual architectural style and e.t. during my last visit of it. But the view from this mountain is so exciting. You forget such disadvantages like dumps of rubbish, intrusive sellers of refrigerator magnets or... More
