  • In addition to the beautiful sights and a rich cultural life of Kharkiv has a rich spiritual life. In the city there are a number of temples and churches, but the most important holy place is considered to be the city's Cathedral of the Annunciation.

  • 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.
