  • As we enter we expect really rich inner decoration. We can be little surprised. The interior is rather simple, It can be because of hard times of the religion during USSR. Still is worthy to see!

  • Begun in 1794 and completed in 1825 the Cathedral was destroyed by the Bolsheviks and rebuilt in 1999.It is beautiful especially as a tribute to the Ukrainian refusal to let their religion be crushed.

  • Lovely place. Better look inside.
  • “Transfiguration Cathedral” in English, the seat of the Kryvyi Rih diocese is a nine-domed church that was only started in 1989 and completed in 2003. Permission was granted to build this new cathedral on a on a small rise to accommodate the city’s Orthodox congregation that outgrew the Saviour-Ascension Church. Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral is a revival of the Ukrainian Baroque style from the 18th century and has nine domes and a bell tower 50 metres in height. This contains 22 bells cast in Novovolynsk, the heaviest weighing 1,200 kg. If you can get in, there are icons of St George and Matrona Nikonova and four altars to admire.
