Certainly important to Russian Orthodox members, it is historic but plain. After seeing other more stunning Orthodox churches, this one seems mild by comparison.

Another place of worship which, whilst beautiful and nice to visit, leaves mixed feelings due to the level of opulence in the decor.

Love the architecture of this cathedral, which is a diversity compared to other cathedrals in Moscow or St Petersburg. It is located just near Kul Sharif Mosque. Unfortunately, did not have time to enter to see the interior. Would love to come back and see.

I've seen dozens of orthodox churches, but this is one that I am glad to have visited. I was lucky enough to pop inside as a men's choir was singing and a ritual was being performed before the iconostasis. Be sure to take a moment...More

This cathedral, just close from one of the largest Mosques in Europe, offers a typical orthodox structure and decoration. Exterior is very sober and white, interior is superbly decorated with beautiful icons and gold devices. A wonderful place especially when quiet in the morning.

Brilliant! As the most part of Kerilim, it is pretty beautiful from outside and rich historic painting inside. Do recommend to come back at night for another photos.
