“Amazing place you'll never forget”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This Cathedral is newly built but nevertheless has its charm, it occupies 5000 sq. meters and can accommodate 15 000 people. It is very huge and can be seen from different parts of the city.
I was impressed by its magnificent beauty. There is even playground for children on its territory.

“Huge new cathedral”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

It's a very impressive building on a hill in the central city. The outside of the building was more exciting, for me personally, than the inside however if you enjoy religious paintings you will like the cathedral. You can get a view from the outside of the cathedral of the city and there is a pool of water (not very clean) if you want to paddle. Even on a hot day i decided against it.
