A beautiful stone building in the style of classicism has survived to this day in its pristine condition. Immediately after the completion of construction, its walls were adorned with skilful paintings, which visitors can still admire today. According to historical data, the first religious building on the site of the modern cathedral appeared in the middle of the 17th century.
