Lukashenko visits Transfiguration Church in Shklov on Easter

MINSK, 16 April (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko visited the Church of the Transfiguration of the Savior in Shklov to celebrate Easter, BelTA has learned.

The construction of the Transfiguration Church in Shklov began at the end of the 18th century by Semyon Zorich, a favorite of Russian Empress Catherine II, and was completed in the second half of the 19th century thanks to the financial assistances of local resident, devout Christian Agafia Sidorova, who is considered the founder of this church. The temple remained active during the years of atheism and the Great Patriotic War. 2014 marked the 150th anniversary of the founding of the temple.
