Church of the Savior's Transfiguration on Ilin Street, Veliky Novgorod

Small, white, and charming, Church of the Savior's Transfiguration on Ilin Street bears delicate details on the exterior, and inside shelters masterpieces of the 13th-century painter Theophanes the Greek. During World War II the church reportedly served as a Nazi workstation for machine guns, and thus the colorful frescoes have been restored and in some places reproduced. Climb the wooden staircase to the mezzanine to take in the beauty of the frescoes, and then continue upwards to a landing under the dome. The church lies at the end of a long, picturesque boulevard lined with apple trees.
