Pokrovsky Cathedral - Kharkiv
The stone parochial church of the Intercession of the Blessed Virgin, consecrated in 1689 by Metropolitan Bryansk Abraham, was built on the banks of the Lopan by Cossacks from a small settlement near the Kharkov fortress. According to experts, the temple was built by the same unknown architect, who built the Transfiguration Cathedral in Izyum fortress five years earlier. At the direction of King Peter I, who visited Kharkov in 1709, the fortress expanded to the north, and the Pokrovsky temple appeared on its territory.

Consolidated he was literally during the first decade since the appearance of the city of Nikolaev. The built cathedral was for the money of merchants, but much effort was put into its construction, and thanks to them, the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Nikolaev pleases us with you to this day.
