Cathedral of the Assumption, Yaroslavl
(3.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Mounted by five gilded domes, Cathedral of the Assumption stands nearby where Yaroslav the Wise is said to have founded the city. The newest temple was built in 2010 to replace the 16th-century cathedral that was demolished by Communists in 1937. See the cathedral's original bells on display outside. Inside, admire the iconostasis and antique icons, which were donated by wealthy locals. Custom requires women to cover their heads when entering the church.

  • Great and very beautiful temple. The Cathedral looks very majestic and inspires respect. Although the building was erected recently, in our days, it very harmoniously blending into the surrounding landscape. Cathedral seen from afar. Inside the huge space, plenty of light and air.

  • The assumption Cathedral is now a modern temple. It was built on the site of the original temple in honor of the assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which was blown up during the Soviet times. It includes a Museum and Archbishop, and Cathedral Hall. Jaroslavcy proud of this Temple, in spite of many ancient churches.
