Transfiguration Cathedral reviews
Right in the middle of the city, there isn't much open space around this church. Typical colourful interior, this time the main colour is a dark sea green.

One-domed cathedral with an attached hipped bell tower. The oil painting of the end of the last century has been preserved in the interior.
