  • It is very important to visit not only in the temple, but also in the service. The religious procession is especially impressive. This is one of the best places in the fortress, where you can pay tribute to the fallen.

  • Going inside you can see the damage during the Second World War. I wanted not to restore it, yes yes it is not restored to future generations to see and understand what is the Second World War

  • It is a former Roman Catholic garrison church, and earlier-before the destruction of the old town of Brest for the construction of the Tsarist fortress-the Baroque church of the Augustinian Fathers. Already after the construction of the fortress, in the 19TH century, transformed into an Orthodox Church; In the years 1920 returned to Catholics. Destroyed during the last war, long not rebuilt, now rebuilt for the Orthodox Church, in a typical Russian Orthodox style referring to the reconstruction of the 19TH century. Well, the story is sometimes not fair... Despite this, the beautiful Catholic pulpit was preserved inside the Orthodox Church (in the church not used):)
