Annunciation Cathedral

This is the largest cathedral of Eastern Europe.
This church, a vivid example of Neo-Byzantine architecture with the 80-meter bell tower, was built between 1889 and 1901 by the project of local architect Mykhailo Lovtsov. The Cathedral can take up 4,000 people. The church is the cathedral of the Kharkiv eparchy of Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate). Catholic Patriarch Athanasius III and several holy bishops are buried in the cathedral.
