At the end of the 19th century, the village of Gorodishche, where the online broadcast is coming from, has significantly grown and improved. The old wooden church, which stood on the site of the temple in the webcam, ceased to accommodate all the parishioners. In 1905, the construction of a new stone church began, headed by priest Konstantin Khitrov. After the assassination of the abbot, an obelisk stone was erected at the place of his death.
The Church of Our Lady “Joy of All Who Sorrow”, shown in the online camera, was consecrated on May 25, 1914.
Services in the church, which you see on the webcam, were constantly held until the 30s of the 20th century. Later, with the advent of Soviet power, the bells were removed from the bell tower, and the rector of the church, Tikhon Andreyevich Nikitin, was arrested. The church, broadcasted online, was closed, and a cultural institution was housed on its premises.
