Church at the end of the road before you reach the railways lines. Small in size but the interior is amazing to look at.

This cathedral stands on Krasniy Prospekt, about two kilometres south of Ploschad Lenina (lenin Square). It was built at the end of the 19th century in neo-Byzantine style using dark red bricks. When walking along Krasniy Prospekt, you will find other historic buildings built with these dark red bricks. Some of its roofs are gold-plated, giving it a very nice... More

It was simply a beautiful Cathedral I was simply amazed at how from the Soviet era they have transformed this beautiful church into one of the most beautiful churches I have seen.

Beautiful cathedral, but after travelling through Russia for a while it doesn't stand out particularly

30 minutes walk from Lenin Square, so worth a visit for it's central location. I consider the Cathedral of the Ascension more beautiful inside and the Trinity Orthodox Vladimir Cathedral more beautiful outside.

We went there during our brief time in Novosibirsk. It's located on the head street of the city. It's a bit of a walk but definitely worth it. Inside it looked very pretty with light colours. Unfortunately we couldn't stay there long as there was a wedding ceremony.

Walk into this small cathedral and you're immersed in a different world. Although Nevsky is most known for a St. Petersburg link, there is a local link too. But we couldn't find out why. The inside is magnificent. About an easy 15 min. walk from Lenin Sq.

Its a small brick church at an intersection on the edge of town. We didn't go inside so I can't comment on that, but we stopped outside and took some pictures. Worth checking out if your exploring Novosibirsk. Include this on any tour of the cathedrals in the city.

The cathedral is an impressive building from outside but to go inside is much more so. Of course no photos allowed - it's a working church - but it's interesting to come inside and see the art work and structures.
