Description of Assumption Cathedral in Yaroslavl

Assumption Cathedral is a medieval Russian Orthodox Church that was constructed in the early 1210's shortly after Yaroslavl was found. It stands on a picturesque hill overlooking Volga Embankment. For centuries Assumption Cathedral served as the main Christian temple in the city and its distinct symbol. Orthodox church was closed and later demolished by the orders of the Bolsheviks (Communists) in 1937 during their drive to eradicate religion from Yaroslavl and all of Soviet Union. and reconstructed only after fall of Soviet Union. Assumption Cathedral obviously served as a symbol of Christianity in the city and thus was demolished as a strike against people's personal beliefs. Building of a new Assumption Cathedral of Yaroslavl started in 2004 and was completed in 2010. It was consecrated on September 12, 2010 by a Russian Patriarch Kirill.
