Everyone knows that the conversion of Russia to the Orthodox faith occurred in the 10th century during the reign of Grand Duke Vladimir, and according to church legends and historical records, the baptism of the Grand Duke Vladimir was held in 988 in the city of Chersonese (Korsun). At that time, Chersonesos was a prosperous Byzantine city.
The temple itself was built in the second half of the 19th century (1861-1891) in memory of the acceptance of Christianity by Russia.
St. Vladimir's Cathedral is an Orthodox shrine, one of the largest Orthodox churches in the world and the largest active temple in the Crimea.
