The church is quite nice from the outside not that much to see on the inside. It is free so worth it if you pass by. Afterwards you can go to the top of the embankment and get the view of the city.

It is just to watch and enjoy the architectural style,it`s special and not like the majority of orthodox churches. We could not go inside as we weren`t dressed properly and there was a Service, but it is worth seeing!
