This is a nice cathedral to visit - basic decor on the inside. It does have a very cool crypt where an artist was painting and selling old school "icon" type paintings. No charge to visit.. you definitely want a photo from outside

This is a spectacular sight, especially in winter when there is snow on the ground. We went inside aswell and we're lucky to hear a lady playing the organ

The church building looked powerful from the outside. The inside was also great. Stands out in the area and well worth a visit.

We traveled at Christmas time so were lucky enough to visit when the square surrounding the cathedral was full of Cristmas markets. The cathedral has a very peaceful feeling and when I entered the organ was playing in preparation for a concert that night. The cathedral often has musical concerts that are worth looking out for.
