The Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene (Polish: Sobór św. Marii Magdaleny) is an amazing Polish Orthodox cathedral located close to St. Florian’s Neo-Gothic Roman Catholic Cathedral on the eastern bank of the Vistula River in the district of Praga, east Warsaw, Poland.
Five interesting facts about St. Mary Magdalene Cathedral:
- It was built in the Neo-Byzantine style according to the design of the Russian architect Nikolai Sychev at the end of the 19th century and used as a place of worship for the Russian officials and military.
- This is the first completely original Orthodox church erected in Warsaw. At that time, other Orthodox churches in the city were former Catholic religious buildings.
- It is one of the two (the second one is in the Orthodox cemetery in Wola) surviving Orthodox churches in Warsaw after the demolition of Orthodox churches in Poland, once the country reclaimed its independence in the 1920s.
- In 1965, the cathedral was entered into the Polish register of monuments under No. 741.
- It is the main Polish Orthodox church.
