This branch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is dedicated to the savior's Transfiguration. On this site the first church of the city was built in 1221. Later Cathedrals were constructed on that spot, including this neoclassical one in 1808. The Cathedral is the burial place of Prince Mikhail Semyonovich Vorontsov and his wife. That is why you will find a monument to the man in the Cathedral Square outside the church. The bell tower of the cathedral has a carillon that is electronically controlled and plays 99 different melodies. Architecturally the highlights of the cathedral are the bell-tower, and a beautiful icon in a side chapel. There is an array of cannons on the ground outside the cathedral. If you can come to listen to the cathedral choir you should. It is said to be one of the best in the city. On the Southeast side of the cathedral across the road you will find a bronze statue Monument to Vera Holodnaya. She was a well-known actress in the silent film era. The statue is said to have done an excellent job of capturing her beauty.
