Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathederal, Karakol

4.3
#1 of 17 in Historic Sites in Kyrgyzstan
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. A visit to Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathederal represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Karakol day trip website to plot your vacation.

  • The lady inside was very serious about not taking photographs. It’s a beautiful church and worth a visit Not much else to say  more »
  • It's good to visit on a sunny day. The church looks amazing from inside and outside. It's made almost completely from wood and the staff keeps it clean.  more »

  • Interesting and well preserved wooden orthodox church, which reminds the multinational history of the town. During your tour around Karakol, you should visit the church, as it is one of town's main attractions. No fee is charged, women should enter the church with covered head. Scarves may be found inside.
  • Very nice wooden church. But during our visit church was closed, we cant see interior.
  • Good place just to see something of Russian Orthodox style. Not really a special place, it is just nice to see something of old Russian orthodox symbols.
  • Truly Beautiful! Worth an hour of your time for sure!
  • It is unexpectedly simple inside but very beautiful. A must seen in Karakol
