Looked At This Everyday

Majestic, beautiful even though the weather was rainy for my 5 day stay in Chisinau. I didn't care. I got to wake up to this every morning.

This is one of my favorite places. I simply love this blue color in combination with golden domes. Very relaxing and pleasant place.

These Orthodox churches are really amazing. Just thinking their age, and then seeing the intricate detail on every inch of the place is amazing..... You should definitely go up the clock tower, the view is amazing, and it gives a different perspective on the church.

We were walking in that area and were really impressed with the beauty of this church. Orthodox churches are very different from Catholic ones and definitely worth a visit.

We where surprised the church was so impressive. Beautiful and very much what you would expect to see in an Orthodox cathedral. We enjoyed watching the Ukrainian women making sure everything was as it is supposed to be.

I was able to walk here from my hotel. It is indeed a must see. You can't take pictures inside, which is okay since the two times I went inside it was really dark and the pictures probably would not have turned out nice anyway. There's so much to admire on the outside. The architecture is amazing!

Don't miss this amazing church. You cannot help but be moved by the history and ambiance. Plan 20 minutes inside. For the outside take pictures as you will have moving memories

In my opinion, this church beats St.Sophia in all respects. The entry is free, the worshippers sincere, no overseers, and the impressive interior could be fully enjoyed.
