The Holy Trinity church (now it is considered as a cathedral) was built in 1641 – 1644. The chronicle of the Hustinya’s Monastery says that the church stands on the bodies of three martyrs, as a result of a tragedy that happened in 1640. At that time, a Tatar horde from Crimea came up close to Kiyiv, and only there, having a formidable resistance, swept back to Perekop, burning villages fiercely in their way. Three days later, pilgrims found three infants slaughtered near the monastery and took them inside. The dead bodies stayed imperishable as long as a year until they were buried under the altar of the Troitska Church being then under construction.

Vrlo interesantan i dobar tekst sa istorijom crkve ...
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i prikaz, lepe boje.
Dobar rad u tri boje, zelena, bela i plava, moje cestitke na dobrom radu i prikazu.
Kod nas se sve vise prave nove Pravoslavne crkve, ljudi se vracaju veri.
Kod nas i dalje Sibirska zima, vlada je proglasila vanrednu situaciju u zemlji.
Very interesting and good article with the history of the church ...
Good image sharpness, contrast and display beautiful colors.
Good work in three colors, red, white and blue, my congratulations on the good work and presentation.
Here is all the more true of the new Orthodox church, people are coming back Faith.
All the best.
With us still Siberian winter, the government declared an emergency situation in the country.

A very pleasant summer picture with a remarkably beautiful church. The three (or maybe four) green spires are well captured against the blue sky. A very attractive picture!
kordinator (14795) 2012-02-08 13:00
This text only says that many people were away from the faith then, when they could do such monstrosities.
But today, despite this beauty has a lot of unbelievers.
Every religion is based on love for God, our neighbors, to all people.
My Orthodox faith, and promotes love to enemies.
This grand building is really caught in the great corner with beautiful shadows.
The colors are magnificent and the quality superb as always.
Best regards my friend

Nice church with the green domes with stars. Beautiful shape of the towers. Similar like the Vydubitskiy Monastir in Kyiv, superb vertical composition.
I am a bit disappointed you omit Warsaw in your bike trip :(.

Hello Sergiy, thanks to your good framing the elegant church with its green coloured domes looks like a bibelot against the blue sky. There's a good balance between the enlightened and shdowed parts of the composition. Congratulations, Tolga

An interesting note to go with the beautiful Troitska church...Love the shape of the green onion domes! They are nicely illuminated and stand out well against the sky. The natural colour tones are great too!

You have captured the details of the church with amazing sharpness, made even more outstanding by the dappled lighting over its surface.
My warm regards,

It is a well-chosen vertical framing, in a low-angle shot that works very well graphically, and gives a nice perspective to the elegant architecture of this majestic church. The light and the shades have a beautiful effect on the elements, and the colors are magnificent.
