This is a central cathedral in Yalta. Most wonderful architecture. Services are very long. Priests are very very polite. Use to go to this catedral very often during my stay in Yalta from 2010 up to 2014.

The golden onion domes stand out in the woodland setting. It's a very interesting building, a wonderful interior with icons etc. well worth a visit and easy to walk to from the promenade and shopping streets.

The cathedral is downtown and very pretty. Pictures are not allowed inside the small church. Like most Orthodox churches, women are asked to cover their hair, shoulders and legs.

Interesting Cathedral. Beautiful Gold Onion shaped domes, stunning iconostasis inside. Amazingly ornate, Culturally mind-Blowing! If you havent visited the Ukraine before, the sight of old ladies in head scarves furiously mopping the floors (and your feet if you get in their way!) is fun.

Built by the Tsars in Yalta, the glint of the sun off the golden domes is amazing. the exterior is breathtaking with gold leaf in between glass mosaic tiles. It doesn't matter where you point your camera, you just can't miss.
