This church is a solutley beautiful both inside and out. The exterior somewhat looks russian. The interior is clean and decorated beautifully with an exotic touch. There is an area to light your candle (for a small donation) and say a prayer.
Really a must see.

I like to visit small nice churches everywhere. I usually got a surprise inside, and it doesn't matter in which city in the world I am traveling.

The church has been built in 1902, survived many vicissitudes of the hundred-year period and, like the Phoenix, after all, was reborn.
The frescoes of the cathedral can be viewed indefinitely.
In this cathedral, as nowhere in the city, a large number of recognized miraculous icons and relics of saints are collected. Surprise. In the relics of this cathedral, there are the relics of the healer Panteleimon and Matrona of Moscow, St. Luke and Philaret of Chernigov. In a large unique box, 38 relics from the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra were brought.

This pretty church is located along the main boulevard Stefan cel Mare, not far from the Parliament building. Some attractive paintings inside.

What sets this church apart is its painting. When you are inside of the church, face the front door having the altar in your back. There is a huge painting showing modern technology such as laptop.

Very central it is one of the best site in Chisinau.
The structure is quite classic.
The interior is superlative as there are a lot of decorations and a lot of frescos.
You can also see a lot of people praying.

The mural on the back wall of this church is absolutely amazing and a must see. Little information on it is available in English but it must be recent as it includes a laptop in the picture.

The rest of the building is much more familiar to the traditional orthodox church

Very nice church. The cruel homoerotic fresco I have seen before (in Minsk I think) and very special, in a church...

Classic columns, ornate interior. Try to visit during a wedding ceremony to hear the beautiful choir.
