Must see · Church · Tourist Spot
Admire Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathederal, a picturesque wooden structure that dates back to the late 19th century. Situated in a verdant tree-filled garden, the church stands atop the ruins of an earlier stone cathedral, destroyed in an earthquake in 1890. The Orthodox cathedral is once again active after a period of secular use during the Soviet Era. Outside, observe its ornate wood carvings and vibrant green domes, and step inside to view the simple interior. A visit to Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathederal represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Karakol day trip website to plot your vacation.

  • This is worth a visit when in Karakol. The architecture is nice and there is a nice little garden as well. Shouldn't take more than an hour.  more »
  • This church is an authentic wooden orthodox church. Nice to see, many original details and the garden surrounding the church is nice.!  more »
  • I have seen first wooden church which is really beautiful.
  • Looks interesting from the outside, but the interior seems to be too ordinary to "aww" somebody. For some reason, they forbid you to take pictures inside which doesn't appear to be tourist-friendly.
