It’s very ornate and beautiful.

When you walk into the cathedral, your head immediately looks up when you go inside.  The cathedral gives you a natural need to look towards heaven and to God.

And as a good Orthodox cathedral, there are plenty of icons and images and other religious items – all designed to remind the visitor of the holy.

The cathedral was a gorgeous reminder of God’s presence in a secular society.
