Pokrovsky Cathedral

Pokrovsky Cathedral was built in brick in 1904-1905 according to the design of the architect Mikhail Mikhailovich Prozorov (1860-1914). The cathedral was built in memory of soldiers who died during the Russian-Japanese war. Its size and style make it very similar to the Daugavpils Cathedral of Saints Boris and Gleb, the largest Orthodox cathedral in Latvia.
