Show sight on map

The Church of Bishop Epiphanius of Cyprus is an unfortunate Church-squealed, adjacent from the east to the other Church of the Assumption Cathedral of the Kirillo-Belozersky monastery-the Church of the Equal-to-the-Apostles Grand Duke Vladimir, being his slightly increased copy. The temple was built over the coffin of Prince Fyodor Teleytevsky-Mikulinsky, who was the stoller and governor in Astrakhan, with the death of which the Kindly clan, the last industry of the Tver princely house, was stopped. Epiphanius Cyprus is his heavenly patron, since after tonsure in the monks the prince took the name Epiphanius. The church was built by local masons, led by Yakov Kostousov. The interior of the temple has reached this day practically unchanged. There were no paintings in the temple. The initial iconostasis, almost without later alterations, is well preserved. The church was one example for the construction of the hospital church of Evfimiy the Great.

The bell tower of the Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery was the last bell tower as a separate structure outside the church on the territory of the Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery Complex. Built from 1757 to 1761 by the Vologda Art Company under the leadership of Fyodor Zhukov, a mason at the Spaso-Prilutsky monastery, on the site of the bell tower before the 16th and 17th centuries. This is a rather heavy building, displayed in the baroque style of provincial northern Russia. Seen alone, it doesn't seem to be particularly successful, but it fits perfectly with the overall outline of the monastery. The ancient traditions of pre-Petrovsky architecture influenced the design of roofs and eaves, to a certain extent linking the architectural language of the bell tower with other buildings nearby without creating annoying contrast.

The early church in 1585 is a replica of the Grand Cathedral of Vladimir, the Apostle of Equality. However, in the 18th century, the church was demolished and replaced with a new Baroque church. She is definitely the strangest element of the whole temple. An open church.
