  • An undistinguished outside the Cathedral, located not far from the Centre and at the same time, not very popular, especially tourists. But in vain. Inside the Cathedral and iconostasis were old wealth is simply amazing!

  • This is one of the 4 's Cathedrals, which represent a golden ring Peter and who just need to visit. Here is a very welcome staff (administrators), who without any paid excursions will tell everything in detail and it is interesting that fascinates. Not many people, so very comfortable. This Cathedral, and Museum and at the same time, because among the icons and church utensils, there are various storefronts with historical exhibits on the walls hang also historical photos and records. The most attractive in this temple that are unique in the world of Saints by month (date of birth). I.e. knowing the exact date of birth, you can define this without mistakes, which is an Angel guardian of that person. This holy icon, to be more precise with his image can not be in any temple, so it's best not to search for and purchase this icon (color card) with a full description of the life of this Saint (cheap, only 25-30 rubles per person). You can also read the full info yourself on an electronic medium, but this cannot be printed. Because this system is unique, and is only in this Council. So be sure to visit this unique place. The area around the Temple is small, but you can walk and photographing.
