On the banks of the Oka there is a charming Nikolo-Naberezhnaya church built in 1700-1717 in the style of Peter's Baroque. People call her Nikola the Wet: in the spring, during the flood of the Oka, water often rises to its very walls. At the foot of the temple is the Nikolsky spring, which is considered curative. Rooster Museum in Petushki.

In the Nikolo-Naberezhnaya church, there used to be images of the twelve Sibyls, which predicted the birth of Jesus, made by the famous Murom icon painter Alexander Kazantsev. In addition, the relics of Iulinariya Lazarevskaya are kept here, and the chapel of Our Lady of the Life-Giving Spring rises nearby.

Address: Murom, st. Chuloshnikov, 27.
