  • Military temples for the victorious Russia is sacred history and prop. The biggest Orthodox Church in Russia, one of the most majestic and beautiful cathedrals of the Orthodox Church. The Cathedral was built in honor of the Holy life-giving Trinity, and it was built for the Imperial Regiment unaware defeats-izmailovsky Regiment. During its construction actively participated, Emperor Nicholas I, in memory of that time, when he commanded the life guards Regiment of Izmajlovskim. Cathedral Museum has always been a repository of military banners, captured guns. Here the send-off in the met services soldiers, here all filled hearts advocates confidence in invincibility and power of Russia. And even shields of warriors of King David at the dome of the Cathedral-a sign of the military spirit. Next to the column "Military glory", is a structure of five circles more than 100 trophy shells of various calibres. It is topped by a figure of victory. Cast iron column base decorated with four Turkish mortars and placed at the corners of the place names the most important battles of the Russo-Turkish war of 1877-1878 Gg. The massive granite pedestal were installed bronze plaques with the names of the persons of the imperial family, listing all the parts of the troops who participated in the liberation war in the Balkans, and a chronological summary of the hostilities. In the lower zone column contains the names of the parties to create the monument and today in the Cathedral there are historical Exposition, which tells about the history of the Cathedral.

  • Got into this Cathedral is already before the closure. People almost anyone. It was unusual to walk into the gloom. It is a pity that not all saw-poor vision and it was hard to see who is on some icons. The icon "the Cathedral of healers," I became strong in the eyes of Resi (never was). Recommend. Cons-occasional services are pretty expensive, but I don't regret a single drop that hit there! Majestic and beautiful building. Glad that this building was revived after the terrible fire. I did not know about the fire until it became home to seek information about the Cathedral. There was a very quiet and peaceful.
