  • Everyone enjoyed it. Beautiful fretwork iconostasis. But quite a small place for half an hour all watched. There come with another goal, not as I do.

  • The Cathedral was built in the 18th century by the order of Natalia Razumihi-mother of Hetman Kirill Razumovsky and Aleksey Razumovsky. The Cathedral is a very beautiful both externally and internally. In the Cathedral there are the lower church and the upper Church. In the upper Church is a huge carved iconostasis. It can be considered infinite.

  • Beautiful cathedral)
  • 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.
  • An amazing place. An architectural monument in the Ukrainian Baroque style, unique 17-century wooden iconostasis. Very nice bike shed. Good atmosphere, adequate people (tourists for clothes not beaten)) choir sings beautifully. I'd like to point out the sermon of the priest-available, strictly, but with humor. From the Bell Tower offers views of the surrounding area. Silence and beauty. We recommend you to visit the people interested in history, tired of the hustle and bustle and just as travel weekend.
