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.

  • Good place to see some history and orthodox things if you have not seen them before. Otherwise it is not really worth visiting.  more »
  • For our group, this was one of the main attractions in Karakol. Arrived after visiting mosques. Stood out like a homeless dog or beggars seeking alms in the form of crumbs from the table and get the Manor. The beauty of architecture of XIX century enjoyed the behind closed fence, an employee of the Church we have not even opened the gate, and arrived the Abbot did not even deign to not get out of his car, he even opened the window, pretending to be our total absence in front of him. In short the architecture of a "plus", and the Abbot and its employees wish to receive alms so we allowed.

  • Very pretty church surrounded by roses. Well worth a visit, which could be accomplished in 1/2 hour. Try to go when the church is open to see the interior too.  more »

  • 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!
