Intercession Cathedral

Intercession Cathedral (May 2013)

Just off Ulitsa Kazanskaya is the Intercession Cathedral which dates from 1820. The cathedral was built to replace an earlier church which was dedicated to St Elijah the Prophet. Even earlier another Intercession Cathedral stood here which was built in the late 16th century, but demolished in 1798. Like Yelabuga's other churches, it is classical in style. In the 1930s the cathedral was closed and only returned to the Orthodox Church in the 1980s. Since then it has been fully restored.
