Church of St. Nicholas in Listvyanka
St. Nicholas Orthodox Church is one of the few preserved architectural monuments in Listvyanka. The building dates from the middle of the century before last. Such buildings in Russia were called the "octagon on the quadrangle". A wooden two-tiered church with belfries is very beautiful and majestic. St. Nicholas Church has its own interesting story.
Merchant Xenophon Serebryakov traded in Siberia in the 40s of the XIX century. His ship fell into a severe storm. Already no one had hoped for salvation. It remained to earnestly pray to Nikolai the Sad, who does not leave the sailors in trouble. And the Holy One helped! The merchant's team left the storm without losses.
