It's really impressive. I would advise you to take a guide and go upper floors, to the bell tower. The cathedral has a great history, as well as a town Novocherkassk.

magestic historical monument and Ortodox shrine. O wish that renovation will be completed soon to come here again to enjoy the beaty and the power of this temple. But even now the opend for a public area makes an indlible impression.

One of the most beautiful orthodox cathedrals in Russia. I was surprised seeing it in such place. Real discovery. Now I know that the town of Novocherkassk was once capital of the Kassak's region. And don't miss the ark - feel like in Paris.

Very impressive in size. Third largest cathedral in Russia. Used to be the second before Christ the Saviour in Moscow was built. Beautiful iconostasis. Absolutely worth visiting.
