Going through Zaporizhzhia I made a few photos of Holy Protection Cathedral (Свято-Покровский собор) that was built not so long ago. The first church on this place was built at 1778 and it was made of wood. In 1886, instead of the woody church building of the new stone cathedral was started that was destroyed by Bolsheviks in 30th of XX centure. The re-building of the cathedral has been started at 1993 and was longed for 14 years. This new cathedral is a copy of an old stone cathedral. Its height is 36m and it is the main cathedral of the city.
Here are a few photos:
