Cathedral of St. Nicholas in Baroque style was originally built as a church of the Franciscan monastery in 1631. Photos by: Maxim Ritus.
After the Polish uprising of 1830-1831, under the decree of Nicholas I, the Franciscan monastery was closed, and its buildings were handed over to the Orthodox.
During the reconstruction, the church lost its Gothic-Renaissance appearance and received the features of Baroque.
Today, Cathedral of St. Nicholas remains one of the oldest Orthodox churches in Kremenets.
