Cool little church. Lovely gold inside and whilst compact it’s well worth a 10 minutes look around. Slightly outside the old town.

Bright structure located just north of the freedom monument makes a nice photo however no photos allowed inside. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Worth a look at this Orthodox Church, near the freedom monument. It’s not on most maps, but you can’t miss it.

When you see the shimmering gold topped dome of the temple head straight there. This orthodox church was an astral observatory under the Soviets. Now it's a gold topped dome with a lot of worship.

It somehow pops out from it's surroundings, very colorful. Yet, compared to any other church in the city, it is not that special to give it 4 or 5. Still worth to see it.
