  • Amazing architecture of the Cathedral are fascinating. Do not expect to see such majestic Cathedral in the small town. Decoration of the Cathedral, particularly impressive frescoes. It is a pity that they are not restored.

  • It is one of the most beautiful temples of the city. I think this is one of the best original temples of Russia! It built a long time (30 years!) in honor of the victory over Napoleon. Five-domed Cathedral looks very solemnly with wonderful frescoes on the pediments. On 12 columns with 4 sides adorn the building. The dimensions of the temple are impressive! Approaching Arzamasu by train it is visible for several kilometers. I believe that the image of the Cathedral of the resurrection of Christ is UNIQUE!

  • Arzamas was renowned for its golden domes, in the city there were 36 churches surely most important is considered to be the resurrection Cathedral. The Cathedral can be seen from any point at the entrance to the city. Personally, I find it very similar to the Kazan Cathedral in St Petersburg. Resurrection Cathedral built on people's money in honour of the victory of the Russian people in the Patriotic War of 1812 year native of Arzamas project architect m. Corinthian and rospisali Cathedral students and stupin. On all 4 's pediments are frescoes. Special solemnity and grandeur to the temple give 48 columns.
