Assumption Cathedral, Astana
(4.3/5 based on 35 reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Astana attractions like Assumption Cathedral can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Does not belong to any religion and religion does not belong to me. As a tourist who got into an unknown country to him, I liked the Cathedral. Built in his expensive manner, like almost all religious buildings. Very graces a residential area of the right bank of Astana. For the curious, wanting to show literally everything superfluous!
