  • In my opinion the most beautiful temple in the city. Its hard to miss while strolling through the city center. Pretty building in beautiful colours. Inside I'm not logged in, but the outside was very charming!

  • You can stop in the middle of the day, at least 5-10 minutes to catch the thrill of staying at the venerable site. Leave at least at this time from the madding crowd. To regain strength, asking the Lord for forgiveness and support.

  • Very interesting temple in all respects. Temple-martyr. The dome is disproportionately small, because temple at one time followed the fate of his heavenly "Chuck"-was beheaded in Soviet times. Then, when he was returned to the Church, dome anew, but considerably smaller than the former. In addition, demolished the Sanctuary because it prevented the construction of the road. As a result, moskovskaya Street remained narrow, and Temple lost altar. But the fact that he survived and continues to operate-miracle. Inside a very small room, but everyone fit. The iconostasis and holy gates placed more compact than other churches, but everything you need to Worship there. An amazing place.
