  • My childhood was held next to the temple. Only as an adult, felt the need to visit such a place. Inexpressible sensation. Remarkable singing as a touching and heartfelt prayers are heard. Not many visitors. Ambience heartache!

  • A beautiful, tidy building stands in the middle of the round square surrounded by large trees. Inside the spacious, there is stored many relics. Here is a very quiet, calm, and the walls are penetrated by the spirit of antiquity. Special attention deserves the fence of the Cathedral, which was created in the memory of the victory in the Russo-Turkish war of 1828-1829. It is made from Turkish cannons installed threat down. Top guns are thick with the double-headed Eagles.
