Church of the White Trinity

Western European Russia

Amid a quaint neighbourhood of old wooden houses with carved eaves and window frames, west of the market on ul Bragina, you’ll find Tver’s oldest building, a stately stone church dating from 1564 that miraculously escaped the usual fate during the Soviet years. Women should ensure their heads are covered with a scarf before entering.
