If you are interested in history, this is a very interesting place to see. It also looks amazing - why take a little detour from the shops and take some pics - well worth it!

The cathedral is an architectural masterpiece, inside and out. Do be mindful to respect worshippers if there is a service going on when you visit. Females should also have their heads covered; winter hats generally seemed to be acceptable when we visited.

The century old cathedral is located in the Upper Town. Admission is free and no photos are allowed. The interior is small but ornate. Churchgoers stand during worship service since there are no pews. There is a gift shop with icon art.

Hello, It was not open during the weekdays when we first went but on returning on the Sunday it was open in all of its glory. Do enjoy.
