Maybe the best attraction of the city. Amazing Church from outside and inside. Too many icons on the inside, you will get lost. If you have the chance, attend a service to experience the greatness of Russian Orthodox Church.

what struck me the most about this Cathedral is its facade - in a bright buttercup, it was really quite different to the other cathedrals we visited on the trip. the iconostasis was particularly impressive.

You must go inside. Very beautiful orthodox church. I stay without words, but I see a lot already. My guide told me about church fundament. Everything is built on oak trunk. Like Venice.

To understand how important it is to get here - it's the 4th adjustment Orthodox church. The atmosphere inside is mesmerizing. Wants to be as long as possible here. We were impressed by unique and huge altar.

Impressive and one of the biggest temple in the city. There is also astounding wooden iconostasis inside it. In front of the church there is a large cathedral bell temporarily installed.
