  • The village of Studenica Khmelnytskyi region was in 80-ies under water as a result of the construction of the dam in novodnestrovsk. According to the information of the old-timer statue of the Virgin Mary (Virgin Mary) brought a gift for Catherine II. When transporting the bottom bit of statues. For many years the village cemetery statue, and before the flooding of the village military transported her in Kamianets-Podilskyi. Now the statue is adorned with the Bishop's courtyard on St. Franciscan beside the Cathedral of Peter and Paul. The sculptural composition is depicted the Virgin, and at her feet-snake, which Holy repels. Perhaps the woman thus symbolizes not only the Mother but also the Eve, which, contrary to the original story, not succumbed to the temptation of the Serpent is the biblical serpent-tempter. A similar statue of the courtyard is the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth.

  • The Cathedral impresses with its unique architecture, particularly surprising minaret, built on the remnants of the chapel of the 16 century HA top of the Minaret is "gold" statue of the Virgin Mary with a halo of 12 stars. Inside the Cathedral, too, have something to look at, but most of all remember the gravestone of Laura. The territory of the Cathedral in colors, stands the statue of the Pope. Around a lot of interesnyz detail, worthy of photographing.
