Historical Irkutsk

Irkutsk churches

Historical city center is the square of three churches: the Church of the Savior, Epiphany cathedral and Polish cathedral.  

1) The Church of the Savior(1710) was built by the master Moisey Dolgikh, it was the second stone construction in the city. The church type is similar to townsman style, which reflects the succession of the old Russian traditions. This building bears the signs of such a phenomenon which later was defined by the scientists as “Siberian baroque”: sunken picture, multi-edged frame. Church of the Savior there is an Eternal flame, the memorial commemorating the soldiers fallen in the battlefields of the Great Patriotic war.

2) Epiphany cathedral (1719-1746) is a real architectural gem of Irkutsk, being colorful and ornate, decorated with tiles and painted like a tawdry painting. It is boasting exquisite window frames, decorative corbel arches and fancy cornices. One can easily notice the influence of the Old Russian traditions and baroque, characteristic of the Russian North.

3) One can’t but see the light, arrow like building of the polish cathedral. At the end of 1884 the first religions service was conducted in this church. Irkutsk architectural treasure was enriched with the unique building with indisputably outstanding art features, a bright example of late gothic style. The main altar gave the official name to the whole church: Irkutsk- Roman-Catholic church of Virgin Mary Assumption. As destiny would have it, the majority of the church goers were Polish people.

4) No other church evokes such a big attention like the Crucifixtion Church. The church was built on Krestovskii hill, at the foot of which for a long time an old wooden cross had been standing. But what makes the Crucifixtion Church really famous is the unique decorative optical softness of the façade walls with complex patterns made up by geometrical figures, which is very characteristic of the decorative-applied art of the Buryat people.

5) Trinity Church. The setting of the frames is made according to the traditions of the Old Russian architecture, and clearly outlined cornices, sunken paintings are the bright example of Siberian baroque. Till 1990 the pillaged and devastated building was housing a planetarium. After the reconstruction the church was returned to Irkutsk eparchy.

6) The Church of the Kazan icon of Virgin Mary embodied the high spiritual sense of the Orthodox religion: the Virgin Mary of Kazan is the patroness of the Russian land! It is built in Russian-Byzantine style. Skillful carvers, gilders, silversmiths, icon painters took part in the setting of the church interior. Iconostasis and the Holy Gates are decorated with exquisite gilded carvings. The main iconostasis contains a carved silver-plated image of st.Lukas.

 

Museum-estate V.P.Sukachev

The complex contains several wooden constructions with the obvious traits of the Old Russian style. It is just gorgeous with the opulent wooden laces and simple immaculate architecture. It reanimates the feel of the gentry estate of the 19th century, organizing music-literature parties, concerts, theatrical performances and balls.
