Entry is free to this must see historical cathedral. The paintings on the walls and ceilings are spectacular. It's also nice to escape the cold winter and get some warmth inside. Everything is in Russian so if you need English explanations or history you would...More

Small but interesting interior with icons and painted walls and ceiling. The painted dove holding the chandelier is a nice touch.
