The first wooden church in the name of the Assumption of the Mother of God was erected on the Salne Bank of Arkhangelsk at the beginning of the 17th century. The locality was so nicknamed because here fishermen have been selling seal fat for a long time. A century later, the dilapidated temple was dismantled and the foundation of a new, stone one was laid in its place. The residents of Arkhangelsk loved the elegant and beautifully painted church, but in 1920 the Bolsheviks closed it down, and 10 years later they completely demolished it. Now the church has been restored, divine services are underway, a children's school and a library are working.

What to see

The Assumption Church is a wonderful example of Baroque with elements of the Peter's era. Its pillarless quadrangle ends with an octagonal drum with a bulbous head on a decorative turret. The three-tiered bell tower standing next to it was erected in the same style. An unusual detail for northern architecture - high windows, due to which the prayer hall is filled with sunlight.

From the inside, the walls and ceiling are painted in Byzantine traditions by the Arkhangelsk craftsmen Igor Lapin and Sergey Egorov. From the dome, the Lord Almighty looks at the parishioners, surrounded by heavenly hosts, on the walls there are frescoes based on the Gospel plots, the upper tier tells about the deeds of the Archangelic ascetics.

The main shrine of the church is the miraculous icon of the Assumption of the Mother of God, miraculously saved before the destruction of the previous building and preserved in one of the temples of Solombala.
