This is one of the prettiest Russian churches – a white building of green roofs and golden domes. Built between 1907-1914, the church is famed for its walled paintings by Russian artists – murals in reds and greens and golds. Even more famous though, is the Archbishop Seraphim Sabolev’s remains in crypt. The Archbishop was thought by many to be miracle worker, and even today, people visit the church to leave letters near his grave, in the believe he will help them. He was never canonised, yet still he’s worshipped as a saint.
