    Krestovozdvizhenskaya Church

    by brazwhazz Written Dec 3, 2007

    Krestovozdvizhenskaya Church (Church of the Exaltation of the Cross) is a well-hidden 19th-century temple not far from the centre of Petrozavodsk.

    Unlike the flashy, newly-renovated Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, it has a slightly rundown aura. The feeling of abandonment is accentuated by the surrounding cemetery that surrounds it, where a series of tombstones from the first half of the 20th century are slowly deteriorating.

    The church is located at Ulitsa Volkovskaya 1, just off Ulitsa Pravdy east of the city centre.

    Well, a lot of people tend to miss meeting the inhabitans of the place they are visiting. Some of my very close friends live in Petrozavodsk. They are some of the most hospitable, nice and intelligent people I've ever met! SO wherever you go, don't miss meeting common people!
