The cross located up the hill in front of the monastery under construction is said to be the largest in the entire Luhansk region. The church is made of square-formed steel and is painted yellow. It is hollow inside. The views from the cross platform are amazing.
The Cross is gigantic indeed: 16 meters high and 8.5 meters wide.
You can see letters INRI on its horizontal beam.
The pilgrims and visitors approach the cross, kneel and kiss it.
