The Pokrovsky Cathedral
Ranked #12 of 201 things to do in Kharkiv
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 April 2016 via mobile

I love ceilings, and the ceiling in this church is very different from the ceilings I've seen in other orthodox churches. There are scarves and wraparound skirts to borrow, for women visitors who don't already have them.

Thank Eva J

One of my favourite churches in the city and the oldest one! Very rare arkitecture of Ukrainian barocco and a very nice peaceful place! The location is great! Worth visiting!

I enjoyed checking this one out. Although the staircase that overlooks the interior was closed. It ws still nice and worth checking out.

Located just behind (west) of Kharkiv Historical Museum, there is a small gate that leads to the cathedral garden. It is not as grand as other churches in Ukraine, but this is a gem in more intimate setting. You can take a little break from hustling bustling city.
