Not being religious and having seen tons of Catholic churches all over the world, I was reluctant to visit yet another church. Wow. I was impressed. The paintings and stained windows were breath taking. I am glad I went.

Not being religious at all cathedrals and the like don't really do it for me, however as we were walking by we thought we'd pop our heads in. Wow, rarely can a building take my breath away but something about this place did.

This may seem like a typical orthodox cathedral from the outiside but from the inside, it's just fabolous. The paintings were also amazing. Apart from that it's just a sight worth seeing.

The building is easy to find and it's on the suggested tourist walking tour route which you can find on the public map here and there on the city. If you follow the red line on the map, you eventually see the most important spots in the city center. The cathedral has a free bathroom near the right wall from... More

I really don't know why it's not rated higher. The exterior is lovely two colored brick and the interior is simply stunning! The frescos are bright and vibrant. It can be hard to capture pictures due to the windows and lighting but don't let that stop you from enjoying it. It makes me want to visit the other painted churches... More

We stumbled on the cathedral while out for a walk. Built between 1902 and 1906, this was a gorgeous example of art and architecture. It would have been great to attend a service at the church.

It took me several attempts to get in here due to the religious holidays that were on during my visit, but it was worth the effort. The frescos are breathtaking
