  • Beautiful and exciting place, Cathedral surprised by its size and beauty on the outside. It's hard not to notice from afar. On top was not going to go inside but then still ventured, liked the icons and murals on the walls of the Cathedral in the main hall, people were not much satisfied with, not for nothing is lost time. I advise to visit.

  • The Cathedral itself is a very beautiful and interesting building, located near the Cathedral market. Interesting and the history of the Cathedral, as several times the cross which is located at the Cathedral, fell with him, thereby giving rise to some doubt as to the holiness of this place. the building is very beautiful, especially in the evening when include backlight. The building is interesting to consider how near and the Hill. Recommend to visit.

  • Awesome Cathedral! More than 3 times burned to ashes, + a lot of small fires and arson. The legend goes that the cathedral stands on a cursed place.
