    This is one of the oldest Christian churches in Ukraine. In the church there are ancient Greek columns, that brought the Byzantines, who built the Church. Interior of course has changed, but the walls are worth a thousand years already.

    I advise everyone to visit these old temples of Chernigov. Temples of 11-14 centuries is very impressive and the Museum of ancient icons in the Borisoglebskom Cathedral is good.

    Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Cathedral was founded Prince Mstislav Vladimirovich Xrabrym at the center of Chernihiv Detinets in 1031-1036. In the year 1024, gaining victory in the internecine wars, Prince Mstislav greatly expanded their possessions. They protjagivalis' from Sivershchyna North Caucasus. At that time in the territory of the Kremlin, or, as it was then called "Dneshnij Castle", constructed the great Prince's Court-central building which was Spassky Cathedral. Over time, it became the burial place of the Princes of Chernigov dynasty.
