The Church of St. Paraskeba (Pyatnitskaya), Chernigov Ukraine

The crowning achievement of Chernihiv masters was the exquisite Church of St Paraskeba (Pyatnitskaya), constructed at the turn of the 12th and 13th centuries. This graceful building was seriously damaged in the Second World War; its original medieval outlook was reconstructed to a design by Peter Baranovsky.
