Usually people who are working in this kind of places are very kind and friendly but in this places some of them were on bad mood. In any case, this places is... More

Nice and wonderful church. You can go in for free and look around. You can buy candles and you can let it in.

Those who are familiar with the method of electing the place for the construction of temples, this temple will be interesting. Located in a valley, occasionally submergible river Kharkiv, one that survived the fire, lost cross ... And a lot of different stories))

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.

The outside of this church is eye catching, to say the least. The stripes make me think of candy canes. 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.

A little bit far of the center, in front of the river stands this beautiful cathedral, beautiful on from both the interior and the exterior point of view. A must see
