    Kharkivin the most eye-catching on the outside at the same time become the symbol of the city Cathedral along very splendid when we get into gözüle but it doesn't have a flashy architecture, at least as the interior design. Calmly you can take pictures, they don't have Görülmesinde girls.

    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. This beautiful architectural building impresses with its splendor even seasoned tourist. Inside the temple is beautiful as well, but only, I ask you, do not support the religious business that there reigns. Just put a candle "departed" you simply will not, on the grounds that it is necessary to buy candles and put 10 almost everywhere in the temple and only at the end that you want.

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. It was manufactured by skilled craftsmen from Moscow. Interesting Kharkov. In addition, in the Cathedral there were 29 icons made on zinc boards known at that time artists danilevski and Mikhailov.

  • Beautiful place, an interesting monument of culture and religion. But if you want to really come to church to hear God, then you need to go to a Baptist Church, type "Transfiguration" or "Yasnaya Polyana", etc.

  • Considered to be the largest Cathedral in Eastern Europe. Built in neo-Byzantine style by the architect m. i. Lovtsov and officially opened in the year 1901. Is one of the symbols of the city and is required for tourist visits. Evening lights no less beautiful than the architecture of the Cathedral.
