Cathedral of the Annunciation, Voronezh

4.3
#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Voronezh
The Annunciation Cathedral in Voronezh is one of the tallest Eastern Orthodox churches in the world.The existing five-domed building of the cathedral with an attached bell tower was erected between 1998 and 2009. It was patterned after St. Vladimir's Cathedral, built in the late 19th century in a Russo-Byzantine style harking back to the works of Konstantin Thon and demolished by the Bolsheviks in the 20th century.The church takes its name from the eponymous Ukrainian Baroque cathedral that was built in 1718-35 in place of an earlier church commissioned by St. Mitrofan of Voronezh; it was destroyed by the Soviets in the 1950s. The existing bell tower echoes the one designed for the old cathedral by Giacomo Quarenghi.A monument to St. Mitrofan, whose relics are kept inside, was unveiled in front of the church in 2003.

    Here worth visiting. The temple impresses with its arches, domes, as well as interior decoration. In the temple are cancers with the relics of the great Orthodox devotees of Voronezh land, for example, the relics of the Saint, first bishop Mitrophan Voronezh, the miracle worker. Painting the Cathedral also impress with their beauty!

    Visited the Cathedral with her family. Delightful shrine. It is very good that nowadays such monuments are architecture. When you visit was able to fairly easily (with a small queue) will be added to the relics. Left Spiritualized. Roamed the territory on which the accumulation of patriotic monuments which in turn completely harmonize with the Church. Recommend to visit for all guests of Voronezh, the more people with faith in your heart.
