  • The Cathedral is very elegant: white walls, blue with stars Dome, central dome, surrounding small domes, Bell Tower and engraved hip zakomary create complex architectural volume, which I regarded as very beautiful. The Cathedral was built at the beginning of the last century to draft l. Kharlamov and Baryshnikov with the active participation of local residents. But the Revolution did not have time to finish the temple and it was plastered only in year 2011. In Soviet times, the Church served as a warehouse.

  • For a long time the Church was in bad form. Gradually, comes an improvement. And the building itself and the interior design are improving.

Construction of the temple began in 1896, in 1914 he was solemnly consecrated the main aisle of the Temple in the name of the most Holy Theotokos. The Cathedral was built in a difficult time, after the first world war and the Russian Revolution prevented finish outer finish, up to the year 2011, the façade remained neoshtukaturennym. In 1939 the Church was closed and paid for warehouses "Gatchintorga". In 1990. Temple returned to the Orthodox community, and he gained the Abbot. They became so beloved gatchincami, father Michael Jurimskij. In 1991. He began to worship, which continued despite extensive restoration work. The Cathedral is the biggest in the Leningrad region, it can be seen from different points of the city of Gatchina. Very beautiful, white with gold stars on a blue domes. Inside the bright, spacious, krasisivo painted. In sunny weather, the Sun's rays penetrate through the stained glass Windows and leave on the floor color highlights. In the center of the stained glass cross yellow glass in red and green setting. Intimate atmosphere reigns in the temple. Holiday service pass nice and solemnly accompanied by singing the chorus. The good priest, and strict at the same time. In the church there are icons and caskets with particles of relics of Saints. Prices on candles and little notes. You can take pictures and shoot video, it's free.
