At Holy Spirit Cathedral, see the miraculous icon of Theotokos, which purportedly appeared on a riverbank in 1500. The cathedral was originally erected as a part of a Bernardine monastery in the 17th century. Notice the golden-blue image of the Holy Virgin on its white front exterior, flanked by two tall bell towers. Allegedly, part of the church served as a transit prison for evicted kulaks, and the building also served as a gym and an archive.

Holy Spirit Cathedral Reviews
町の中心の広場から見える緑色の屋根の教会です。 周囲にベンチがたくさんあるので、地元のお年寄りが休んでおしゃべりしています。 ミンスクの見所の一つであるので、訪れることになると思います。 more »It is a church with a green roof seen from the square in the center of town.

In any case, the temple is one of the main attractions of the city, so take a few minutes to see it
A beautiful church with a simple but imposing green and white exterior, that is in total harmony with its surround. The mass One of the landmarks of the city of Minsk. The Sunday mass was excellent with people attending it in full religious devotion.
This Cathedral was earlier the Bernardine Church during the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth period. After the Russian takeover it became an Orthodox Cathedral. The icons and the rich paintings filled all over gives it an ethereal atmosphere. Monday 15, July 2019 I was in the Cathedral and found the Holy Mass celebrated by the Metropolitan of the city Lots of faithful participated in the celebration.
