Assumption Cathedral, Astana

4.5
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in Astana
Admire slim snow-white towers, shiny gilt-pointed domes, and blue roofs with side semi-domes at Assumption Cathedral, an elegant place of worship in Astana. Completed in 2009, this 68 m (223 ft) tall structure serves as the main place of worship for Orthodox Christians in the new capital. An impressive triple-decked 18 m (59 ft) tall iconostasis with more than 50 icons, gilded doors, elaborate wood carvings, and gold-leafed murals creates a majestic atmosphere, enhanced by the cathedral's great acoustics. Watch the faithful praying and lighting candles, then pull the ropes hanging from the tower's exterior and ring the bells.

  • Visiting a place of worship is to enter a space and a culture that is not ours. This is masterful, both Orthodox Church by your size as the content in your interior. There is not a single white wall, and everything is covered in icons, talha dorada and objects of worship. I arrived in time to still hear a little bit of a prayer. Very interesting.

  • The Cathedral is a recent construction backed by President of Kazakhstan. Respecting the typical architecture of Orthodox cathedrals and inside it has a wide range of painting that covers all the walls and ceiling and a very large and complex iconostasis.
