St. Nicholas Church in the village of Virkov
In former times, there was a church in the village of Virkov, built in the XVIII century and consecrated in honor of the Nativity of the Most Holy Theotokos. Until its destruction, it was assigned to the Assumption parish of the village of Svisloch. The building is wooden, with a separate bell tower. Most likely, in the XIX century the church underwent repair work.  In 1963, it was destroyed. In the two thousandth, an Orthodox community was formed here. A house was erected on the site of the former religious building and a temple was equipped in it. By 2009, the church was strengthened, and last year it was ennobled inside and out, thanks to the initiative of caring local residents and those who come from here.

Now there is a cozy room for prayer and even unique mosaics made by the hands of Viktor Barabantsev. In his works, the honorary Belarusian artist depicted miraculous icons of the Virgin, especially famous in the Mogilev region. "Worthy of a city, not just a village," is how its rector, Priest Maxim Kireev, describes the quality of the renovated church. You can see this by looking at the photos.

In December 2021, a memorial plaque with a part of the stone was brought to Virkov from the temple in Demre, from Turkey (formerly the Lycian Worlds), where the body of St. Nicholas was laid to rest after his righteous death.
