(4.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
As one of the main religious structures in the country, St.Yura Cathedral represents a blend of Eastern and Western architectural styles and dates back to 1744. Standing on a hill overlooking the city, the church's Baroque facade symbolizes power and strength, while the Rococo interior and the courtyard feature lavish ornamentation and soothing prayer areas. The priceless collection of artifacts and sculptures within includes a 17th-century icon of the Virgin Mary and a famous statue of St. George. You'll have the chance to see the dramatic stone portal and tour the tombs of distinguished Catholic figures. Look for the Baroque-style residential palace at the complex. You can also check out the souvenir shop, which has various religious gifts including vivid Eastern-style icons.

  • Backlight makes stunning Cathedral. But even without it, it is worth visiting, in any, absolutely any time of the day.

  • Alas, I have not felt the inside entering the spiritual rest, as it usually happens in the temple. Inside and outside, very nice! But scurrying tourists murdered in the Cathedral a sense of sanctuary.

  • Beautiful architectural structure, complemented by a rich internal decoration. And of course, breathes history. Son Mozart masterpieces here, served as his father and other composers (there is a plaque). Also here are buried prominent church leaders. Inside, a sense of spirit, warmth and tranquility.
