This is a nice cathedral centrally located downtown. And it's very easy to find. I thought it was worth checking out.

Unfortunately you can't go inside but this landmark is well worth walking by and photographing. Is one of the best landmarks in Kharkiv

I would give this a higher rating if it was open to visitors. I've visited the city twice, and as far as I can tell, this is only open when there is a concert. (I could be totally wrong.) It catches your eye anytime you are in the city center.

This cathedral isn't in use now. It's being used as an organ hall. So I didn't buy a ticket to go inside but the lobby interior is nice. The outside looks really nice also.
