Around the City

Annunciation Cathedral and Transfiguration Church

Before the Revolution, Galich's main cathedral was the Annunciation Cathedral which was built between 1808 and 1815 in the centre of the earthen mound of the city's central fortress. However after the Revolution the cathedral was closed and the classical style building has since fallen into disrepair. A plaque on the former cathedral is dedicated to Emperor Alexander I's visit to the cathedral in 1824.

Next to the cathedral is the equally dilapidated Transfiguration Cathedral which once served as the heated winter church of the complex.
