Posted on July 31, 2012 by kulichik

Ukraine has many beautiful ancient churches. Let us have a look at them and note the difference between cathedrals built in different centuries and under different influence.

Nikolskaya Church.

Similar churches are found in Russia as well. New Ropsk, the 18 century.

Old Ropsk, 17 century.

Trinity Cathedral next to Dnepropetrovsk.

The church was founded by the Zaporozhye Cossacks. It was both a fantastic city and unassailable fortress. It can definitely be related to the most beautiful wooden churches in the world.

Pokrovskiy Cathedral.

A church in the Chernigov area.

    Spectacular. I hope that these wooden churches are well-maintained — old wooden buildings are particularly susceptible to fires.

    The last picture is about a “new wooden church recently built in Svyatogorsk.” Does it mean that the skills needed to build such large and intricate wooden buildings are still being taught and practiced? How does the transmission of know-how take place?

    I like Ukrainian churches, but what they have to do with Russia?
