Inside very beautiful icons and nice and rich architect. People have to wear tops with covered shoulders and some long pants or skirts. Like that atmosphere very much.

Lovely Cathedral. A real place of history & architecture. A peaceful place for reflection after the hustle & bustle of a city trip. Lovely to see the geese 'guarding' the outside area.

Make sure your shorts are more of a longer length. I was refused entry & I thought my shorts weren’t short at all but it’s down to the person allowing you entry.
