  • Orthodox Church of the intercession of the Blessed Virgin was built for the needs of the Russian garrison of the fortress in 1782-1785. In the church you can see the icons, the most valuable of which is the one that is located in the center of the north wall. Her age dates back to 200 years. It is known that the church was visited by Russian emperors. In the church to this day, there are two Kiot with icons donated by Alexander III on the 100 anniversary of the temple. Unfortunately, it is possible to visit the temple only in summer, in winter services are held only on big holidays.
