Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in Sinichya Gora (Russian: Церковь Петра и Павла на Синичьей горе, Tserkov Petra i Pavla na Sinichyey Gore) in Veliky Novgorod is one of Russia's oldest churches, dating from 1192. The church is located at the Saint Peter Cemetery, on the left (Sofiysky) bank of the Volkhov River, outside of the limits of the old city. The Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in Sinichya Gora is on the World Heritage list as a part of object 604 Historic Monuments of Novgorod and Surroundings. The building was designated an architectural monument of federal significance.
The church was built collectively by the inhabitants of the former Lukina Street, and was a part of the female Saints Peter and Paul Monastery. The monastery was plundered in 1611 by Sweden during the Time of Troubles and never recovered, finally being abolished in 1764. After the monastery was abolished, the church was converted into a cemetery church. It is the only surviving monastery building. It was closed for service in 1925 and fell into increasing dilapidation, though currently it is undergoing a restoration.
The small stone church is built as a cube and has one dome. The type of a small church was developed in Novgorod in the end of the 12th century, and there are several churches of this type, in Novgorod and in Staraya Ladoga.
