Tserkva in a new role as a centre of local culture

Narol - Tserkva in Narol district - Krupiec

The new brick tserkva, built at the turn of the 20th century, replaced a two-hundred-year-old wooden building. It was based on traditional Byzantine architectural patterns; tripartite, oriented to the east, based on a cruciform plan, with an expressive dome on a large drum. Attention is drawn to the simple portico with a balcony and recesses for figures, and the decorative facets at the edge of the roof. The interior, ruined by decades of use as a warehouse, was conserved in the early 21st century, preparing the site for use as a Concert and Exhibition Centre. Remnants of 20th-century polychromy are visible on the walls and vaults.
