The Sretensky Cathedral in Yalutorovsk is undoubtedly the most important temple of the city, a fine example of Siberian Baroque architecture. According to historians, first created in 1659 in the ensemble of the first prison, it changed its structure and shape over time, but remained a favorite temple of the local residents.
The Cathedral, like a phoenix, has always found new life after being destroyed. For example, in 1837 the first wooden building was remade in stone with a beautiful three-tiered iconostasis on a picturesque bank of the Tobol River. At the beginning of the 20th century, the building was closed for repairs, and a decade later, with the arrival of the communists, it was transformed into a youth club. In 1931, the Cathedral was completely destroyed in explosion. At the beginning of the 21st century, a wooden chapel was built on this place in the memory of the temple, and in 2010 the historical stone building was completely restored. The money was collected from all over the world.
Today, the walls of the Cathedral, same as they used to before, are crowned by two large and four small domes with crosses. The height of the bell tower with a spire is 35 m. The temple is open to the public from 8:00 to 19:00.
