Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathederal, Karakol

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.

  • Russian Ortodox, good historical place, part of Royal and Soviet times
