This is the largest Bulgarian orthodox cathedral in Varna. It is also the residence of the bishopric of Varna. The cathedral is located right in the middle of the city. The panoramic view of Varna is priceless from up here, but for that you have to climb up 133 stairs of the narrow caracol. The architecture of the temple is modelled after the famous Peterhof temple in St.Petersburg. The religious people will find this to be a very spiritual experience. But it is the architecture enthusiasts who will enjoy the most. Highlights include:
- The 38m high Belfry
- The Bishop’s throne
- The Golden Onion Domes
- The murals
- The colourful Stained Glass windows
