Assumption Cathedral, Nur-Sultan

4.6
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in Nur-Sultan
Admire slim snow-white towers, shiny gilt-pointed domes, and blue roofs with side semi-domes at Assumption Cathedral, an elegant place of worship in Astana. Completed in 2009, this 68 m (223 ft) tall structure serves as the main place of worship for Orthodox Christians in the new capital. An impressive triple-decked 18 m (59 ft) tall iconostasis with more than 50 icons, gilded doors, elaborate wood carvings, and gold-leafed murals creates a majestic atmosphere, enhanced by the cathedral's great acoustics. Watch the faithful praying and lighting candles, then pull the ropes hanging from the tower's exterior and ring the bells.

  • The main cathedral of the capital. It is obligatory to visit, especially if you are a religious person. The inside is very beautiful and atmospheric. Services are held in the morning and in the evening.

  • The Cathedral is a masterpiece of beauty and Truth. Not a secular worldly spot left and as it should be. You are entering the Holy of Holies. I’ve never seen anything like it. It most definitely directs all the senses to God. This is a beautiful work of the faithful.
