Denominations of Nizhny Novgorod

Nizhny Novgorod, which for centuries stood at the crossroads of trade routes in the center of Russia, has absorbed the cultural traditions and beliefs of different peoples. In the city today there are churches of various confessions, which are represented in modern, although traditionally Russian, but partly multinational Nizhny Novgorod. You will get acquainted with interesting religious buildings, many of which are architectural monuments, and I will help you immerse yourself in different eras, beliefs, customs and, of course, the history of the temples themselves.

Description of the excursion

What awaits you

The Stroganov Baroque is a merchant's pride From the peaks of the Dyatlovy Mountains on the Fedorovsky embankment, we will admire the view of the Strelka and one of the most beautiful temples of Nizhny Novgorod. You will learn about the "Stroganov Baroque" and about the Church of the Cathedral of the Most Holy Theotokos, better known as the "Christmas Stroganov", one of the most beautiful churches in Russia. Several striking episodes of Soviet films were filmed against the background of this temple; the unique stone carving of the church has delighted travelers since the 18th century. And the legends associated with the opening of this church and the dynasty of merchants Stroganovs still excite the imagination.? Spiritual life of the bourgeoisie, merchants and the poor in Nizhny We will talk about this while walking along Ilinskaya Street between the churches of Elijah the Prophet, Uspenskaya and Voznesenskaya. Archaeological evidence suggests that merchants have lived here since the 15th century. You will find out what kind of "regulations" limited the life of the average man, how church choirs and services differed. What attracted people to the church service for centuries, what legends and traditions were associated in popular memory with a particular temple or monastery surrounded by Nizhny Novgorod. We will be able to go to one of the existing temples (during their service hours, if they coincide with the excursions). ? A place where religions meet We will talk about how the unique multinational marketplace in Nizhny Novgorod became "the key to trade with Asia", what churches and confessions were presented at the Fair and in the city, how fervently the merchants who came to the fair prayed, what architectural solutions were accepted here. You will see one of the oldest synagogues in Russia. She is over 130 years old. The building of original architecture resembles a Torah scroll. Then we will head to the place where three churches of different confessions are adjacent on a site with an area of ​​about a hundred meters. You can admire it from the mountain called Grebeshok, its other name is "Yarilina Gora", a place where pagan holidays were once celebrated.? Traces of Old Believers in the life of the city The history of Nizhny Novgorod is closely connected with the tragic and difficult history of the Russian church schism. Its bright page is the deeds of Old Believer merchants and their extensive charity in Nizhny. You will see the widow's house (now the hostel of the Technical University), built at the expense of the Old Believer Nikolai Bagrov, nearby there is a unique ancient cemetery and the temple of the White-Krinitsky Old Believers - the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. on Korolenko Street you will see the current church of the Bespopovites and the Church of the Three Saints, to which Alyosha Peshkov (better known to everyone as Maxim Gorky) was sent to confession. (or) the cathedral mosque on the Kazanskaya embankment. Both the temple and the mosque are architectural monuments. How it happened that a Catholic church settled on Studenaya Street, and a Muslim mosque near Sennaya Square, who were their parishioners, how the fate of the priests of churches of these and other confessions changed in the tragic thirties - this will be discussed at the end of the meeting.
