The Holy Ascension Cathedral - the Pearl of the Simbirsk Diocese

A bright-blue baroque Holy Ascension Cathedral (Spaso-Voznesenskiy Cathedral) is one of the youngest cathedrals in Russia. It was built in 2014, although it might have appeared much earlier. Indeed, the Ulyanovsk diocese started working again in 1989, and a proposal to erect a new church instead of the lost Spaso-Voznesenskiy Cathedral was made in 1993. But first a wooden All-Saints Temple was built. The construction of a cathedral, frozen for 8 years because of the economic crisis of 1998, began in 1997. 

The new cathedral was built on the basis of the photographs of the original Spaso-Voznesenskiy Cathedral, erected in the early twentieth century in the pseudo-Russian style and demolished in 1935. St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral in St. Petersburg was an additional source of inspiration. The present Holy Ascension Cathedral is four times larger than the previous one and can accommodate up to two thousand parishioners. The cathedral is finished in white-blue colors from both outside and inside, with stucco and gilding. All icons in the temple are new and written specifically for it.
