  • Was 3 weeks ago. Not like here is that there steel to carry crowds on the tour. Visiting gang, they laugh, fotaût everything. The most important thing that I killed when Russian guide taught them all to be baptized. Me is generally break (because they have their own religion and Buddhism). I did the Guide on this comment! Unpleasant, came clean, and there catch! Gorgeous Temple, apparently made for tourists!

  • 位置稍微有点远,教堂可以免费参观,内部很精美,屋顶上是宗教壁画,东正教是画像崇拜,所以没有雕塑,下午5点左右到的,看到有教徒在唱圣歌,然后有神职人员拿着一个散发着熏香味道的小提笼走到大家面前,转一圈又回到后面 
  • This is a whole complex of the Cathedral + a sculptural group, with a fountain and small fishes. Recently opened after a big renovation. Inside the elegant decoration of the Interior-frescoes in the styles of classicism, with stately ornaments, granite-marble floors, dark-green marble lining the walls, golden-yellow granite reliquaries with icons in the frame of green marble columns, dark brown iconostasis. Salary of the iconostasis of carved natural stone (feeling of chocolate)-great! Icons and wall paintings are worthy of worship and respect! Recommend to visit to understand the harmony of space! A superbly thought-out and well-groomed territory around the temple! That rare phenomenon in Christian churches is not always it comes to landscape. Wonderful composite panel with a fountain: the Virgin Mary with baby Jesus, an Angel and animal figures of Angels at the stairs and an abundance of flower beds and a small pond. Agree, this original and unusual decoration for our Orthodox churches. Floated in the pond these fishes. About Temple walked with pleasure
