Transfiguration Cathedral Reviews
One-domed cathedral with an attached hipped bell tower. The oil painting of the end of the last century has been preserved in the interior. more »
When i come to Tiraspol, because the old soviet times i have on my mind tosee churches in russian style. This is another style, perhaps poor but in good condition. Nothing special. more »
The history of the Transfiguration Cathedral has been counting down since 1814, when the engineering authorities of the Bender fortress began work on moving the city away from the fortress for 250 saplings (600 m) to the south with the aim of creating a serf esplanade. The Assumption and Nikolskaya churches, because of their dilapidation, collapsed during the transfer, which led to the decision to build a new temple on the site of the ruins of the Turkish barracks in honor of the Transfiguration of the Lord. On August 22, 1815, during a military parade in the presence of citizens, the Transfiguration Cathedral was laid as a symbol of the liberation of Bessarabia from the Turkish yoke. The project of the temple was prepared by a member of The Kishinev spiritual dicasteria archimandrite Ioanikenius, and assumed in the cathedral three annexes: Nikolsky (left) and Ouspensky (right), named in memory of the collapsed churches, as well as Preobrazhensky (central). Nikolsky's annex was consecrated on Dec 5...
It's an identity. There is a sense of presence. A certain aura of spirituality. Very beautiful frescoes. Orthodoxy in all its manifestation. I recommend a visit.
