I've visited this site twice over the last four years visiting Kharkiv, the interior, like most Orthodox churches in Ukraine have beautiful icons and murals to view. However it's the exterior which sets this apart from the majority with the red and white stone bands and the ungilded dome which are more Byzantine in construction, going away from the tradition "onion shaped" domes.

This is a beautiful Cathedral both inside and out. I was lucky enough to arrive during a service and the chanting, singing and incense gave me a truly spiritual experience even though I could not understand a single word. Visit - it is a sumptuous treat for your senses and soul whether you are devout or non-believer.

the largest cathedral in Eastern Europe, in the eclectic style of the Byzantine and Gothic styles. Gorgeous!

Again best viewed at night this is a very atmospheric and attractive cathedral. For me the only problem was how spectacularly unfriendly all the staff at the cathedral were ince you got inside which made for an unpleasant visiting experience.

This cathedral looks really beautiful, and the interior beauty far exceeds the exterior. But apparently no ones allowed to enjoy it. I was immediately approached by a man sitting in a chair after entering. He made a big fuss about my hat despite the fact that all the women were wearing shawls over their heads. Then he began yelling and pointing at the floor when I tried to walk deeper into the interior of the cathedral. Obviously you're not allowed to walk more than 10 feet inside the door. Then he began making a big deal babbling something about my camera after I took it out to take some photos. If you really don't feel like being patronized then don't waste your time going here. I never understood religious fanatics. They talk about how great their religion is, but as soon as you show any interest in it you're immediately ridiculed and belittled for it.

Don't miss this impressive cathedral if you're in the city. It is one of the two main things I refer to people when they ask me about Kharkiv (the other of course being Gorky Park). It's also along the river so the location is quite nice as well. If you're comfortable going out at night, the cathedral lights up and is quite beautiful during this time.

A beautiful place, try to avoid the visitors, and you pay to go inside, but from the outside it is a beauty, look above the doors for the frescos, worth taking pictures of them.
