It was not to easy to find this cathedral but it was worth it. I is very big and beautiful, a lot of paints, gold, it is very rich as ortodox cathedrals in general. Entrance is for free.

The Cathedral is very beautiful inside. There are many very nice icons and they have an area with their special relics.
