The Black Tulip War Memorial is a beautiful structure dedicated to those who have lost their lives in various wars. It is worth the trip to see if you are in Ekaterinburg.

Zapolyarnik

Reviewed By Руслан И - Norilsk, Russia

Обычный стадион. Хотя, летними видами спорта можно заниматься месяца два-три. Запомнился он мне масштабным концертом группы "Звери" года три-четыре назад, который вроде бы транслировался в прямом эфире MTV.

Обычно храмы, церкви, соборы издалека приковывают взгляд, настолько они красивы и величественны, так и хочется зайти внутрь. Этот же храм таким не отличается, не впечатляет он снаружи. Но если зайдёте внутрь, будете приятно удивлены роскошью и красотой, все в золоте. Красиво очень

Holy Trinity Church

Reviewed By Rbluecat - Kingisepp, Russia

Этот храм расположен в районе Норильска, который ранее был отдельным населенным пунктом, в Талнахе. Из-за того, что сейчас Талнах формально считается районом Норильска, а здесь на сайте выделен как отдельный населенный пункт, может произойти некоторая путаница. Я, например, долго думала, где в Норильске есть такая церковь, и почему я ее не видела. Оказывается, видела. :)
Церковь можно увидеть сразу же, как только приезжаешь в Талнах на автобусе из Большого Норильска. Она стоит через дорогу, недалеко от автовокзала, немного наискосок по левую сторону.
Храм этот деревянный. Полагаю, срублен из сибирской лиственницы, которая очень вынослива.
Внутри я не была, но знаю, что там регулярно проводятся богослужения, функционирует воскресная школа.
Здание церкви очень красивое, наяву - как на картинке, залюбуешься. и веет о него таким особым русско-сибирским духом!
