A lovely little church right in the middle of town. If you are in Novosibirsk you have to see it and it is hard to miss.

I spent the first few days in Novosibirsk when I first met my wife. This beautiful little church always reminds me of those romantic days in Novosibirsk. I always look forward to seeing it again.
