Beautiful Orthodox Church. Simply a stunning building inside and out but no photographs allowed inside. The inside is stunning however and if your visiting be respectful of the dress code and worshippers.
It is one of the must see attractions. The church has amazing architecture and it will take your breath. It is free of charge. I definitely recommend to visit also inside. There are many nice painted icons on the walls. There is also grave of one of the Saints. There is no waiting line. It could take you up to 20-30 to misit and check the details.
