“A sight not to be missed!!!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

When I first came to Donetsk one winter several years back, this beautiful cathedral was covered in snow and lit up. I assumed that because of its very Baroque Orthodox style that it was a 17th or 18th century cathedral. I was surprised to find that in fact it is not that old a building being constructed on the site of a former WWII German Officer Cemetary and built in the 1990's. Inside the quality is amazing. I went there one sunday morning very early to take some photographs only to find it full, the old the young all together and a Gergorian choir in the gallery above. Don't miss it if in Donetsk!!

“Currently under repair”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

Will be a beautiful place of worship, spacious (most churches in Donetsk are overcrowded), with excellent choir. Currently all the icons are covered with plastic - they paint frescs on the ceiling and the walls.
