Nice part of history. Looks nice and has a good view of the river and town. The orthodox church is well maintained, and is located on the touristic walking route and near a nice restaurant.

Thank 1Mansouri1

Uspensky Cathedral has an excellent location and is standing tall overviewing the whole area. The cathedral is very busy and there are a lot of activities going on there all the time. It is well worth a visit.

That cathedral is considered by locals as a main architecture attraction and its beautiful and veeryy calm. I think in some way it reflects Belarusian culture.
