This church is a vivid example of Neo-Byzantine architecture with an 80-meter bell tower. It was built between 1889 and 1901 by the project of a local architect Mikhail Lovtsov. The board can accommodate 4,000 people. The church is the cathedral of the Kharkiv diocese of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate). Catholic Patriarch Athanasius III and several holy bishops are buried in the cathedral.
