Holy Trinity Church In The Village Of Gervyaty

Ostrovets, Belarus

Holy Trinity Church is  located in the large village  Gervyaty of Ostravets District, Grodno Region. It is   among the three highest churches in Belarus (61 m) and is undoubtedly one of the finest examples of the neo-Gothic style. The temple was built in 1903 on the site of a wooden church of 1526.

However, the church had survived all the wars and revolutions and was never seriously damaged. The church today is in excellent condition and is valid. In addition to worship in the church building also hosts a variety of conferences and concerts of organ music. The old organ in Trinity church is designed specifically for the incredible acoustics of the church, so it sounds fantastic.
