Cathedral of the Holy Ghost

Cathedral of the Holy Ghost

One of Minsk's only remaining historic buildings, the Cathedral of the Holy Ghost dates back to 1642 when it was built as a convent for Bernadine nuns. Like the city itself, the Cathedral has a chequered history, damaged by fire in 1741, turned into a monastery, and ultimately closed down by the Bolsheviks. Today it is once again open for services and visitors, and is one of the city's prime attractions with its remarkable collection of icons from the Moscow Academic School. The collection includes the Icon of the Mother of God, according to legend discovered in the river in Minsk in 1500, allegedly made by St Luke the Evangelist.
