Description of the Transfiguration Cathedral in Uglich

Transfiguration Cathedral is located in Uglich, Yaroslavl Oblast of Russia. It was built in 1713 by architect Gregory Fedorov. The bell tower of Transfiguration Cathedral was added in 1730. It is a five- domed cathedral without pillars made with elements of Naryshkin Baroque. South facade of the church is facing the city, characterized by a classic portico erected in 1840. The interior of Transfiguration Cathedral is covered by icons that combine traditional Russian Orthodox styles as well as style of Renaissance and Baroque. Large square hall of Transfiguration Cathedral has no supporting pillars thus increasing the size of the room. Baroque iconostasis that separates the altar of the church from the rest of parishioners was installed in 1860.
