12th Century Church Discovered by Archeologists in Smolensk

Researchers of the Archeology Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences have found and unearthed an Old Russian church of the 12th century in Smolensk.

      This earlier unknown Christian church was constructed on the left bank of River Dnepr when Smolensk was the capital of the Smolensk Principality, one of the richest and most powerful Old Russian principalities. Now three invaluable monuments - three churches that have to some extent kept their initial shape – have remained from Old Russian architecture of the 12th century in Smolensk. 

      The newfound monument of Old Russian architecture of the pre-Mongolian period is located on a slope river bank; it was built on a leveled platform. The unique object has its walls remaining, which are low in some places, but reach human height in others.
