  • Cathedral immediately attract your attention, if you walk around the Metro. Historical Museum. A metro station is located on a hill, and the temple at the bottom.

The Interior of the Annunciation Cathedral in Kharkiv was as beautiful as its appearance. The iconostasis of Carrara white marble with gold and Byzantine ornamentation.
