    Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Cathedral-new building. Beautiful modern shrine. But, unfortunately, not always open.

    Light temple in all senses, not like the others. Inside the spacious, lots of light, all made of mosaic, marble candlesticks with salt or small stones, which puts candles. Next to each icon-text of prayers. There is a particle of the relics of St. Luke and particles of the Kiev-Pechersk Saints. Each time, visiting a new temple, did not stop to wonder and marvel at the beauty and uniqueness of each one, inexpressible atmosphere and spirit, filling these holy places! You can only advise one-recommend necessarily visit this temple with an open heart and a clear head!

    Cathedral not quite plain and not so much from the outside, how many inside. Decoration of the kind and beautiful (great gilded murals on the walls), but at the same time, you feel more like a kind of amphitheatre, and not in the Church. Probably that's why I prefer churches on the old fashioned way. But go look, still stands.

  • The temple, though it is the original form, but in fact, it is a maximized copy of ancient Chernihiv p'âtnic′koï Church. Inside exquisite mosaics, such as Florentine. Near the Bell Tower is a monument to St. monument. Blaženìjšomu Vladimir, preceding the Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. There is also a museum with artifacts, perevezenimi of the Lavra. The only Temple of the UOC, where sermons, and partly also of the liturgy are conducted in Ukrainian. The bells made in Belgian Malini (Mechelen), so the tunes that you can hear are colorful, so-called. malìnovij Bell. And this is privneslo in quite a modern district called Monastic Was the spirit of the middle ages.

  • Beautiful scenic temple complex. Landscaped area near the reservoir, there is even a children's playground. The Temple of unusual architecture. Very light and airy, though not great. Mosaic inside leaves a lasting impression oduhotvorjajushhee.
