St. Catherine`s Church in Chernihiv

St. Catherine`s Church reflects all the best practices of Ukrainian religious architecture. The church was erected in honor of the heroism shown by Cossacks from the Chernihiv regiment under the command of Colonel Yakiv Lyzohub when assaulting the Turkish fortress of Azov in 1696. It is in Ukrainian Baroque style. This church, which is located on a hill in the historical center of the city of Chernihiv, looks like a typical wooden Cossack church. The construction of the church was paid for by Cossack brothers Yakiv and Semen Lyzohub. The church was consecrated in 1715.
