Places to visit » Karakol » Orthodox Church
Orthodox Church was built more than 100 years ago. It is an old wooden Church. At Soviet times it was not allowed to have any kinds of religions and it was used as a dancing hall. Local people did not like it and they tried to repair and to keep it in good conditions secretly. After our independency in 1991 people managed to get back the church. Now they use it to come and to pray and it has many beautiful icons inside. It is allowed to visit it but women must cover their heads with kerchiefs.
