  • One of the oldest Orthodox churches in the city. And one of the most popular (before the advent of "kol'kina supermarket"). Elegant, lightweight design as though flies through the air, reaffirming its name Temple of the Ascension of the Lord! And the internal situation matches the appearance-a sense of grace does when entering the Church, true spiritual place.

  • I advise to visit. Very interesting ancient icons and the Interior of the Cathedral. At the priest's gorgeous timbre-reads prayers-lore.
