Photo and description
The Church of the Holy Trinity is one of the most beautiful Orthodox churches in Gabrovo. Located in the heart of the city.
On the place where this temple is now located, a small church was built in 1804. It existed until 1879, when it was destroyed, and in its place began the construction of a new impressive size of the temple. The church leadership entrusted the construction of the building to the master Gencho Novakov. The construction lasted for ten years, but the result was an architectural masterpiece of the Bulgarian National Revival. On November 5, 1889, the newly built church was consecrated by Metropolitan Clement.
The Church of the Holy Trinity impresses with its architecture: the central dome of the basilica rests on three pillars, and inside there are thrones of amazing skill. The church is adjoined by a small chapel dedicated to St. John Chrysostom. In addition to its collection of icons, the Church of the Holy Trinity is famous for its library - there are unique old editions of the Gospel. One of them was printed in Russia in 1854, and the second - in 1856 in Vienna.
In 1932, restoration work and major repairs were carried out in the church building, and then a tower was built, of which four bells still call parishioners to prayer every day.
