  • 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 outstanding monument of Ukrainian architecture. According to Wikipedia: "built in 1752-1763 years to order family K. Rasumovsky by architect Andrey Kvasov and involving Ivan Grigorovich-Barsky, who is the author. Along with the cathedral stands the Bell Tower, built in 1766-1770 years, also designed by Andrey Kvasov.
