This church was a frequent scene in many Soviet-era movies that features old pre-Revolutionary topics. That is why I wanted to visit it at all costs. It looks very nice from the outside, but inside - there is nothing. The renovation is still going on, like 15 years ago(((

The church is a fabulous old building, in harmony with all the buildings around it. A UNESCO site as I understand it. The inside looks like a bomb hit it... under reconstruction.

A magnificent cathedral, forming a part of Rostov Kremlin. It is a pity that the interior is in really poor condition. A massive restoration work is under way.

Beautiful cathedral within Rostov Kremlin Complex. Traditional dome shapes with golden crosses on the top. It was recently renovated from outside and looks very pretty, but unfortunately still being refurbished from the inside, so we were told its not wort going inside as its all under construction works.

The Cathedral seems to be a very beautiful one, but at the moment it was under reconstruction and the unique atmosphere of a Cathedral was lost
