St Nicholas' Church in Vladychnaya Sloboda

St Nicholas' Church in Vladychnaya Sloboda dates from 1669 making it the third oldest surviving church in the city after St Sophia's Cathedral and St Demetrius of Priluki's Church. It consists of a traditional cubic structure topped with five domes which are its most striking feature as they are slightly larger than expected for such type of church. Attached via a small vestibule is a bell tower. The church was closed in 1930 and subsequently used as a workshop. In 1994 it was returned to the Orthodox Church in 1994 and underwent restoration which saw the reconstruction of its bell tower and domes which were demolished during the Soviet period.
