The Cathedral of the Transfiguration in Novosibirsk was built only in 1992 and opened to the congregation in 1997, in spite of the fact that there were a few thousand Catholics living in Novosibirsk in the early XX century! Yet, they have once built a church for them, which was demolished in the 1930s.
The red-brick architecture of the Cathedral of the Transfiguration combines the Romanesque and Gothic elements. Quite an unusual element here is the three roofs, which symbolize the three Tabernacles of St. Peter. The central window is made in the form of a stained glass. Sacred processions are held on holidays in the slype around the cathedral, and the bells on its three towers ring every day. The only striking clock in the city is located on the front face of the cathedral.
