Church of the Dormition of Gontchary Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Four sky-blue onion domes framing a fifth gilded one indicate the enchanting Church of the Dormition-of-Gontchary, in the Naryshkin Baroque style, built in 1654 and topped by a bell tower a century later. The magnificent interior décor, with earthenware tiles made by the Byelo-Russian ceramicist Stepan Poloubes, boasts a finely wrought gilded wood iconostasis from the 18C (the icons are more recent). Note also the icon representing the Virgin with three hands.
