After I walked through Vermanes Garden, I headed over to Nativity Cathedral.
The structure is large and sits in a park, so there is little else around it, except for trees. Unfortunately, photography inside of the cathedral is prohibited. Let’s just say that like most old Orthodox cathedrals, it is ornate, beautiful, and focuses your attention heaven-ward. Another little fun fact about the cathedral from the tourist map that I had: “The construction of this cathedral was completed in 1884. During Soviet times, it was converted into a planetarium and cafeteria called ‘God’s ear.’ It has since been transformed into a fancy golden masterpiece for worshippers and visitors alike.
