  • Part of the Church in the basement, very unusual, beautiful and inside cold)) the main Cathedral was closed, but you can look at the inside of the Cathedral through the large gates, the iconostasis is astounding, very beautiful!

  • Why Kozielec as yet has become a tourist attraction, it's hard to say. With the Cathedral really go ahead can be measured with all the most famous sacred buildings in Ukraine. The Cathedral is first of all a huge and exquisitely made. It's probably the best picture of the Ukrainian Baroque, which has survived to the present. Unfortunately, access to the Church is somewhat difficult due to the lack of tourism. However, even with the outside looks magnificent. It is worth to get here.

  • Must go, but better not Sunday and not church holidays-too large crowds and it is impossible to park. And the show should definitely!

  • Kozelets The town's main cathedral and architectural attraction is the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin. The cathedral was built in the mid-18th century in the late Ukrainian Baroque style by architects Ivan Hryhorovych-Barskyi and Andrei Kvasov, according to a project by imperial architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli. Funds for the construction of the cathedral were provided by Alexey and Kyrylo Rozumovsky (the latter was appointed Hetman in 1750). The Cathedral consists of two tiers. The first one is the Church of Adrian and Natalia – Rozumovsky tomb. The second is the Cathedral. The interior design is represented by carving and gilding. The decoration of the cathedral includes a five-finger iconostasis, carved out of wood by the Italian masters from drawings of the architect Rastrelli. There is an interesting story about how the iconostasis appeared in Kozelets. He was made for the St. Petersburg Smolny Convent. But Rozumovsky brothers, being in Elizabeth’s good graces, have transported the 27 meter high iconostasis to Kozelets. However, the attempt to install it in the cathedral in one piece was not successful. It was decided to send the parts to the church in the native village of Rozumovsky. The iconostasis consisted of 80 icons, 50 of them have remained until now. And divine force invites you to enter the cathedral, to pray, to light a candle and to think about the life.
  • Inside of the Cathedral is a stunning multi-tiered carved iconostasis of gold-plated Linden of the 18th century, created with the participation of the architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli.
