St Simeon Stylites' Church

One of the finest examples of baroque church architecture in Pereslavl-Zalessky is St Simeon Stylites' Church which dates from 1771. In style it is similar to the city's Forty Martyrs of Sebaste Church which was built around the same time. Its most striking feature is the amount of windows it has, each with a decorative frame. In 1929 the church was banned from ringing its bells and then eventually completely closed. It was originally used as a warehouse before becoming a theatre. It was reopened and restored in the 1990s.
