The church was built in honour of the Russian troops when they came to the bottom of the Kruglaya Hill on May 17, 1551. The wood for the building of the church was brought from the forests of the Uglich region to the Sviyaga River. Ivan the Terrible himself used to pray in this church before the final battle for Kazan in 1552.
  • The Church of St Constantine and Helena. In 1551 Ivan the terrible personally ordered to build a wooden church here.
