It is simply amazing the amounts modern Russia spends on rebuilding its churches - and this is a great example. A beautiful building in a beautiful (and underrated) city.

Make this your first stop in Omsk. Much more worthy of top rating than the plumber! Ideally some of the trees could be lopped to allow an unimpeded view.

A very enjoyable visit today. We went with a guide to explain the intricacies of the Russian Orthodox faith & the icons et cetera in the church. Definitely one of the few worthwhile things to do while here in Omsk in the winter.

The main Cathedral in Omsk has been painstakingly rebuilt to the exact original specifications (before it was previously demolished). The building is magnificent, set right in the centre of the city, with beautiful architecture inside and out...a must-see in Omsk!
