"St. Michaels" Saratov Off The Beaten Path Tip by Upstate1NY
Saratov Off The Beaten Path: 15 reviews and 20 photos
This church is on the main road leading to "The Bridge" I believe it is called St. Michael's.. Others have mentioned it's brilliant blue domes but I am still not certain of it's name. You can see it from the base of the memorial (almost) cross overlooking the city. Look east toward the bridge to Engles, you cannot help but see the blue domes. It is interesting to notice that the Saratov Cathedral is having a bell tower built for it, like many Russian Orthodox churches the bell tower is separate from the church. At St. Michael's it is integral to the church building, similar to a western style church.
(To all VTer's in Saratov, if you spot a mistake PLEASE tell me! My spoken Russian is limited and my understanding is poor at best!! I would be VERY happy to correct any details that I have wrong.)
