About
Trinity Church was built at the highest point of the intersection of Troitska and Novomestenska streets. It was completed by the Lintvarev family in 1827. At the end of the 19th century, the building could no longer accommodate all believers, so the headman Pavlo Kharitonenko suggested that the clergy build a new church at its own expense, resembling St. Isaac's Cathedral in St. Petersburg. In 1901-1914, the Trinity Cathedral was built according to the project of Sumy architect Gustav Scholz. The mosaic floor of the church was designed by Russian architect Alexei Shchusev. Famous painters Ignatius Nivinsky, Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin and Mikhail Nesterov worked on the interior, stained glass and iconostasis of the church. After 1917, the cathedral went through the difficult times. It was repeatedly closed, and during World War II the premises were damaged. During the Soviet era, a warehouse of haberdashery was located in the cathedral for almost thirty years. From 1988 to 2001 – the organ

Beautiful church
Aug 2017 • Couples
Actually I was married there in 2012. It is a beautiful church outside and inside. And unlike protestant churches, each "place" on the inside has a different symbolic meaning. It is not "just a room". If you visit a orthodox church and you are not orthodox you should have a guide.

Beautiful Building
Jun 2013 • Couples
It was neat to see how different cultures view religion. There was a lot of beautiful architecture in the design. It was run down a little because of the neglect the Soviets gave churches.
