Photo and description
The Russian Far East has long been famous for its ancient shrines - Orthodox cathedrals and temples. Such shrines of the Far East include the majestic Cathedral of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker in Vladivostok.
Compared to other temples, this cathedral is quite young. It was founded in 1996 by local priests and consecrated in Saint Nicholas, who is considered the patron saint of sailors and the military. People come here to communicate with God, share their problems, and receive consolation. Every Sunday, the rector of the church holds a service. A large number of parishioners come to listen to his sermon every time. It was the abbot of the church - Father Valery - in the early 2000s. Acted as the main initiator and made many efforts so that the Cathedral of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker was reconstructed after the difficult 90s. The abbot of the church asked all city organizations and enterprises to donate money to this charitable cause. They managed to raise a decent amount for restoration work.
From the very beginning, it was planned that the cathedral would be made in the Novgorod style. However, as it turned out, this is a very expensive business. Therefore, it was decided to build the temple in the usual, classical style.
The new cathedral is decorated with eight golden domes made in Zadonsk. The interior is decorated with beautiful frescoes by artists specially invited from famous Russian art centers. The cathedral has a beautifully carved altar, graceful rosette windows, and a beautiful room for the choir.
