Peryn Chapel

The Church of the Nativity of the Theotokos on Peryn (Russian: Церковь Рождества Богородицы на Перыни, Tserkov Rozhdestva Bogoroditsy na Peryni) in the environs of Veliky Novgorod is one of the city's oldest churches, dating from the 1220s. The church is located 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) from Veliky Novgorod, by the source of the Volkhov River where it flows out of Lake Ilmen. The church is a part of the Peryn Skete, a former monastery abolished in the 18th century, and is the only functioning church in the complex.
