Miraculous Sofievka Park in Uman, Ukraine

We live in Kyiv, only 300 kilometers from Uman, and can easily get to Sofievka park by car, bus or train… As we heard a lot of exalted stories about Uman park, we decided to go there by car early in the morning and see the park ourselves. The way to Uman took us through the thanksgiving parks, and our arrival in the Uman square was unexpected. The square was full of people. The Cathedral was covered with sparkling snow, and many old wooden or stone buildings looked like vibrant jewels besides the square. Uman Cathedral was built in 1703.
When we entered the square, right in front of the Cathedral, there were already some wooden benches laid out in a circle around the monument to Duke George of Swezey. There were also some stalls selling souvenirs and gifts for tourists. By the way, the Cathedral door remained shut. It was celebrated that at the moment of consecration, the Governor of Kyiv blessed this church, and the Governor called for troops to surround this church and the Cathedral. It was also announced that the building of this church cost 7 million gold ribbons!
Well, our first view of Uman’s Cathedral was rather reluctant. It was covered with snow, and all the stalls were open. What a wonderful sensation it was to enter this huge building!
