Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathederal, Karakol

4.3
#1 of 9 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.

    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.  more »

    The Russian Orthodox Church is a large wood construction, which was apparently brought in a better State now (i.e. after 2014). Alone the many towers with their Golden (Golden) onions show the formerly dominant Russian influence in the region and a feeling of connectedness with "Mother Russia". The Interior of the Cathedral is not very impressive compared to other Russian churches. So, the total ban on photography is easy to get over.

    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.
