This cathedral has a gorgeous exterior that is hard to get a good photo of because of the neighbouring buildings. Well worth the trip to have a look at it. Also check out the archways across the street for their wall and ceiling paintings.

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.

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

Orthodox Cathedral. Open daily 6 am to 8 pm. Byzantine style. Built in 1906 and modelled on a famous mosque in Istanbul.

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
