Quite interesting ruins can be seen in the Drogichinsky district, Brest region. small abandoned Church of the Holy Spirit located near the village Ulcers.

Yazviny, Brest region

The church is dated 1750 year, and its size rather resembles a chapel. The shape of the temple is square with a small semicircular apse, made in the baroque style of brick.

In the middle of the 19th century, Yazvinsky church converted to an Orthodox church. Then a sly turret appeared on the roof. The temple of that period is depicted in the picture Napoleon Orda.

Despite the abandoned state, the area around the church has been cleaned and apparently inspected by someone. A wooden information plate hangs on the facade, and the entrance to the inside was blocked with a forged grate.

Interestingly, if you look at the Google map, you can see that the temple does not fall into the composition of the nearby villages (Lezhitkovichi и Pigasy). The inhabitants of these villages call the place where the church stands - Winch (since there is a children's camp of the same name nearby). Probably once there was a gentry estate on the territory of this camp, which would explain the appearance of a stone church in these parts.

Since 1919, the temple was returned to Catholicism, remained active until 1944. Then, in Soviet times, the church was closed. The building stood empty and was not used, over time more and more falling into disrepair. If you plan to visit the ruins of the church, then I advise you to call in from the M10 highway, the road is much better.

What else is interesting to see in this region? Be sure to go to Zakozelwhere the reconstruction ends chapels-tombs of Ozheshko.
