Worth the visit if you have never seen a Russian Orthodox Cathedral before. Between 12am and 2pm it might be closed due to ceremonies.

Attractive architecture, simple interior, well maintained grounds, note that females need to cover their knees and shoulders before being allowed to go in, if you forget they will provide a thin disposable paper coat

I have seen many people in a wheel chair around this area so I would say yes it is possible. Be aware of busier times for crowded space throughout the flower market on the earlier part of the day.
