Description of Sochi Cathedral of Archangel Michael

Cathedral of Archangel Michael is a modest Russian Orthodox church constructed in the late 19th century in Sochi. Cathedral of Archangel Michael was constructed in 1873- 1891 under supervision of architect A. S. Kaminsky and decree issued by Grand Duke Michael Nikolaevich of Russia. It was dedicated Archangel Michael spiritual protector of Grand Duke to victorious conclusion of the Caucasian War that the Russian Empire led against the tribes of the Caucasian mountain range. Most of resources were donated by rich merchant Savva Mamontov and Count Felix Felixovich Sumarokov- Elston. Cathedral of Michael Archangel was opened on 24 September 1891. During Soviet rule the church was closed in 1929 and turned into a warehouse, however World War II changed that. As it happened in many other parts of former Soviet Union atheist government agreed to return some of the religious buildings to the faithful. Cathedral was returned in 1944 and in the 90's its interior and exterior was reconstructed.
