On Friday, December 28, the Novgorod State Memorial Estate will open an exhibition with frescos of the Novgorod Transfiguration Saviour Church. The frescoes are dated to 1380. As the museum website reports, the frescos restored after the Great Patriotic War, have been mounted on titanic boards.

      According to the RIA Novosti news agency, wall painting of the second half of the 14th century was last time displayed about ten years back at the Rescued Frescos exhibition in Novgorod Yaroslav’s Yard. Now the exposition will be opened in George's Church at the 14th century Torg (Bargaining) also located in the Yard.

      The Transfiguration Church constructed about 1345 worked until the early 20th century. In 1970 a new church was set up in its place; remained fragments of the former church can be seen in it.
