The Spa Cathedral Jul 26, 2017
Assumption of Our Lady Cathedral is located on the territory of the spa. It was built on people’s donations at the beginning of the 20th century and soon, in 1912, it found itself in the middle of a spa after mineral water spring had been discovered in that area.

The cathedral was closed by the Bolsheviks in 1937 during the aggressive atheist campaign. It was reopened during the Nazi occupation in 1942. In 1957 it was closed for the second time. The ardent Communists destroyed the interior and installed a mineral water pump there. In 1990 the cathedral was returned to the church.

The healing springs became a symbol of Myrhorod. However, Myrhorod resort, in addition to its unique mineral springs, is proud of this church that can be called the city shrine, the Martyr Temple, - a memorial temple that adorns the vintage Myrhorod today.

No photography is allowed there, but I offered a small donation for the Temple and, since there were no other visitors, the icon shop's lay sister did not object strongly to me taking a couple of pictures there.

How lovely! Good that you were able to take photos and share it with us in return for your donation - a solution worth considering next time I encounter such a photography ban!
