Church of the Holy Spirit

The single domed Church of the Holy Spirit (Dukhovskaya tserkov) was built on a site of an earlier wooden church. Its construction was carried out by craftsmen from Pskov in 1476 and 1477.

The church has an open belfry, which was even used as a watch tower in the early 17th century. Together with the Trinity Cathedral, the Church of the Holy Spirit forms an ensemble.
