Church Architectural Building
Admire Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathederal, a picturesque wooden structure that dates back to the late 19th century. Situated in a verdant tree-filled garden, the church stands atop the ruins of an earlier stone cathedral, destroyed in an earthquake in 1890. The Orthodox cathedral is once again active after a period of secular use during the Soviet Era. Outside, observe its ornate wood carvings and vibrant green domes, and step inside to view the simple interior. Our Karakol itinerary maker makes visiting Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathederal and other Karakol attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Truly Beautiful! Worth an hour of your time for sure!
  • It is unexpectedly simple inside but very beautiful. A must seen in Karakol
  • We saw it only through fence. Pity that we couldn't really enter the church as it was really unique building. Must see in Karakol.
  • I have never seen this kind of wooden church before. You can not take photos here but it's worth to see the charming architecture.
  • Very old wooden church, this must be looked at when you are in Karakol!
