St. Simeon's Cathedral

Saint-Siméon Cathedral was built between 1865 and 1868 in brick, according to the project of the architect of the city of Brest V. Polikarpov. The cathedral was built on a former monastery church, which burned down several times and finally closed together with the monastery in 1824. In 1865 the relics of St. Athanasius were brought to the new church. During the Soviet era, the church was abandoned and had to be restored in 1988.
