Description of Vvedenskaya Church in Feodosiya

 

Vvedenskaya Church in Feodosiya is a Russian Orthodox Church in Feodosiya in Crimean Peninsula, Ukraine. It is considered to be the oldest surviving structure in the city. This beautiful building was erected on the ruins of much older Byzantine Orthodox church that dates back to the 7th century AD. Vvedenskaya Church of Feodosiya consists of several structures. The oldest part is the Byzantine chapel. Other rooms served as a school for local kids and private residence of the priest who once lived here. Vvedenskaya Church served a large community of Greeks that settled these shores since the ancient times so services were held in two languages: Greek and Russian.

 

Vvedenskaya Church was closed in the 30's of the 20th century. It was closed by fanatical atheist government like many other churches, cathedrals and monasteries in former Soviet Union.
