I took a taxi to get here. You can go inside the cathedral and see the massive interior. There is a little gift booth. I felt transported to a different time as if in some movie. It is an orthodox church so many women wore head scarfs. It is a treasure in this city.

This is a really beautiful cathedral. It's very easy to find day or night when you are downtown. As it can be seen from almost anywhere in this vicinity.

I didn't think the inside matched the outside in terms of how eye catching it is, but it's still very nice. I've been to Kharkov a couple times, I've only found this church to be open at times when a... More

This was a gorgeous Cathedral inside and outside. This is an active church so there were people praying inside all around. Certainly worth a visit. Be still and just admire the beauty and work that was put into making this place a reality.
