The Russian Orthodox Church of St. Simon (Svyata Simonovskaya Cerkov) was finished in 1914. It was several times rebuilt after fires.

The church consists of an apsis, a refectory and an entrance hall. Inside a beautiful wooden three storey iconostasis can be seen. When we visited the church it was closed, but an old lady opened the church for us and explained us the main things in Russian.

Directions:
The Church of St. Simon can be found on an elevation right in the heart of Kamyanyets' old town.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
