  Svyato-Voznesensky Cathedral at the 28 Panfilov
by Klod5

A jewel of the 28 Panfilov Heroes? Park is the Svyato-Voznesensky Cathedral. Another wooden creation of Zenkov, it is said to be built in 1904-1907 without a single nail . The building has survived the notorious 1911 earthquake graded 10 points under the Richter scale and all subsequent earthquakes.

Despite the long period that the Cathedral was not functional (1927-1995), it has kept its splendor and spirit. The Cathedral resumed daily services in 1996 after it had been returned to the Russian Orthodox Church.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
