We were not allowed to make pictures inside. It's a pity. The interior is admirable. Covers (headscarf and skirt) are must-have

Typical orthodox style building but very beautiful both inside and out. Well worth seeing on a visit to Izmail in Ukraine. It's a pleasure to wander round such a peaceful and tranquil place.

I love ceilings, and the ceiling in this church is very different from the ceilings I've seen in other orthodox churches. There are scarves and wraparound skirts to borrow, for women visitors who don't already have them.

Located just behind (west) of Kharkiv Historical Museum, there is a small gate that leads to the cathedral garden. It is not as grand as other churches in Ukraine, but this is a gem in more intimate setting. You can take a little break from...More
