Greek Sophia churchKherson, Ukraine
5 / 5
The Greek Sophia church is the oldest church in the city, built by the Greeks from the island of Chios. From a height and at sunset, it has an unusual and captivating appearance. Inside, it has a nice and cozy atmosphere that creates a peaceful and welcoming ambiance. The church is truly beautiful and has been a location for various occasions, including four funerals that I have unfortunately attended. The hall is spacious enough to comfortably accommodate 40-60 people. One of the highlights of the church is its interesting iconostasis, which showcases intricate elements depicting various scenes from Scripture. The priest is very good and adds to the overall positive experience of visiting the church. Being the oldest temple in Kherson, it is believed to have a special energy, similar to that of the famous Kiev Pechersk Lavra. The church is a truly magnificent and ancient place, making it an ideal venue for weddings or baptisms. It's a must-visit destination, as the interior is just as stunning as its exterior.
