Church of the Nativity of Christ in Gora (Kashin)

Kropotkina Street, Kashin, tel.: +7 48234 202-24.

Patrol men wrote about the Church of the Nativity as early as 1621, "There is a church in Rozhdestvenskaya gorka Sloboda (settlement), owned by Ivan Semyonov Sergievsky..." Later the settlement was confiscated from the landowner and handed over to Kashinsky posad, including the Church.

In 1774 to 1786, the wooden building was reconstructed in stone. It was a small one-dome church with a three-tiered bell tower crowned with a spire and a round apse. The Church stood on the right bank of the Kashinka River.

During the reconstruction of 1868–1870, a large refectory with side chapels and a new bell tower were attached to the building. The church rectangular got a different top. The facades were made in the Russian Revival style.

In 1929, the bells were removed; the icon stand was dismantled.

In February 1934, the iron roof was taken to pieces. In summer, the crosses were taken down and the roof was completely broken.

In 1937, the bell tower's tent was dismantled. A warehouse of Zagotzerno facility occupied the Church.

In 1947, a fitting shop of an industrial plant was arranged in the building.

In 1983, the Church was partially restored. However, the bell tower was not reconstructed. The building was handed over to the church; the cross was restored; church services were resumed.
