Photo and description
The Resurrection Cathedral is an architectural monument located in the Volyn region, in the city of Kovel, at 124 Nezalezhnosti Street. It is the fifth cathedral church in the city that has survived to this day.
The first written mention of the Resurrection Cathedral is found in 1549 in the letter of Queen Bona. The temple has repeatedly experienced destruction and revival. The first wooden church, according to the Volyn information for 1873, burned down at the end of the first half of the 16th century.
Much to our chagrin, this church did not stand for a long time, because in 1718 it again suffered a fire, and the belfry burned down with it. The parishioners still managed to save the church property and the iconostasis, which they transferred to the possession of the Vvedenskaya church. After a while, a small chapel was erected at the place where the church was located.
In 1782, an agreement was signed with the inhabitant of the village of Mizove, master Dadints, to restore the temple. The church was rebuilt on a stone foundation. But the tests of the temple did not end there - in August 1848 the wooden church burned down again. Alexander Radkevich, the archpriest of the cathedral church, was very active in the restoration of the cathedral.
The five-domed stone Resurrection Cathedral standing in the very center of the city was erected in 1877 and named in the name of the Bright Resurrection of Christ. During the brutal wars of the 20th century and militant Soviet atheism, the church remained unharmed, unlike other Kovel temples. Today the Resurrection Cathedral belongs to the supporters of the Russian Orthodox Church and is one of the most beautiful architectural monuments of the 21st century in the city of Kovel.
