This orthodox temple is astounding .The upper one is still under construction inside but the lower one is marvelous. It 's flooded with lights from the biggest chandeliers I've ever seen. The ceiling and walls are decorated with bible pictures and saints and gilded which makes it so rich. It seemed heaven to me.
The temple is gorgeous and huge. This is one of the biggest in Europe. Upper (central) part of the temple is still not finished, currently painting and other works are in progress, but it’s really great that crypt of the temple can be visited while works on the upper part of temple are in progress. The crypt is really a must see, no words to describe how beautiful it is. Outstanding chandelier, murals and everything else that is inside the crypt.
