Cathedral of the Holy Trinity

The Holy Trinity Cathedral was built in its present form in 1690 as a Roman Catholic church, and the adjacent premises were completed much later as a monastery of the Carmelite fathers. In 1795, Emperor Joseph II liquidated the monastery, nationalising the property. In 1808, the church became Greek Catholic. The church was renovated in 1894-1905. The iconostasis was painted in 1909 by the talented Galician painter Modest Sosenko. The church only became a cathedral in 1993.
