Good place to see some history and orthodox things if you have not seen them before. Otherwise it is not really worth visiting.

Very pretty church surrounded by roses. Well worth a visit, which could be accomplished in 1/2 hour. Try to go when the church is open to see the interior too.

You must visit the cathedral, its a short visit but it worth it. A nice ancient building made of wood, inside it's also impressive. Inside It's recommended for Women to cover their hair.

A place of calm, peace and tranquility in a lovely area. The cathedral was in the process of being cleaned and we did not go inside. However, the grounds are beautifully kept and if you need to have a few minutes just to 'be' then...More

Beautiful building but unfortunately it was closed during our visit, so we took a look only from outside which is amazing.

It is worth visiting however I was a bit disappointed since we cannot walk inside the church. But altogether, it is a nice place to visit.
