It is located near the Greek square and is known as the sight of the city of Odessa. The Cathedral is not only beautiful but also full of the tragic facts of its history. Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Cathedral was plundered and even partially destroyed. After the October Revolution this sight of old Odessa has been turned into entertainment place.
