Cathedral of the Holy Resurrection

Top choice in The Carpathians

The city's punctiliously renovated Greek Catholic cathedral is a fine example of baroque symmetry crafted in the mid-18th century. Huge bronzes of St Volodymyr and Princess Olga stand by the entrance, solemnly ushering the faithful into the beautiful, dimly lit and mustily aromatic interior.
