  • Visited the Cathedral in March 2017. Honestly, learned about it quite by accident and more were waiting to see Spassky Cathedral. But when we came with his wife was a delight. Elegant architecture, scale. And inside is very high with a beautiful wooden iconostasis.

  • Repeatedly looked at this remarkable Cathedral from afar, from the opposite side of the River from different places which abound. And here is finally crossed through Kanavinsky bridge. The Cathedral is in a particular place on the arrow (the confluence of the Oka and Volga River) and on the street-Arrow next to some very unattractive "something", bordered by a fence, called "river port, as well as a huge football stadium construction. Beautiful Cathedral built outside, 19-20th century, but somehow reminiscent of modern buildings. Fortunately, inside he turned out to be real, in all senses a historic, magnificent trim, painted walls and ceiling, huge 5-Ty deck carved iconostasis. Cathedral quite massive height-second only to the Temple of Christ the Savior in Moscow and Isakievskomu Cathedral in St. Petersburg. I think that a mandatory place to visit. History of creation of the Cathedral is linked to status in those years, the Nizhny Novgorod fair, located near-money on the construction of collected merchants.
