Nice example of preservation of both building and cultural heritage. Peaceful area in the middle of the crowded city. To be visited.

Aug 2016 was there at the cathedral, it's like the equivalent of the sacred coeur in France! And very similar to St. Nicholas in Kiev. Overall, it's very tall, two equal towers with a shorter tower in the middle. Great halls and icons in the cathedral.

As per disrespectful chinese people, this place is no different. Selfies and other photos are taken throughout the church with the majority of people sitting playing with their cell phones.

I walked there after I finished with my shopping at Onelink plaza, it's about 5 minutes walk from there. Along the street, there're also stores selling dry food.

Taking 25 years to build, it is pretty architecture even for non-believers. Nearby has a big wholesale area for dry food, stationary, decorations as well as bake stuff. Nice to wander around if you have an afternoon.
