One of the cult sights of the city of Omsk is the amazing Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ. The temple has an interesting story. In 1975, according to the new general plan, the city “stepped over” the Irtysh River and began to gradually build up its left bank. In the summer of 1990, a cross was erected on the site of the future church, after which construction began. This project was carried out by a team of authors, the leader of which was A. Karimov, the architect was A. Slinkin. Supervised the construction of V. Kokorin. As a result, the temple became a real gem of the Left Bank.
Built on the day of the 2000th anniversary of the Nativity of Christ, the cathedral is well visible from almost anywhere in the city, including the right bank of the Irtysh River. In December 1997, the first service was held in the church. The consecration ceremony of the Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ took place on July 4, 1999.
The bell tower of the cathedral is decorated with a radiant bell "Leonid". So it was named after the local governor L.K. Polezhaev. It was he who played an important role in the construction of the cathedral and the restoration of other city churches. The height of the graceful cathedral bell tower is about 42 m. Now the sound of church evangelism on the left bank pleases all residents.
The right side of the cathedral was consecrated in the name of the icon of the Mother of God of Kaluga, the left - in honor of the new martyrs and confessors of Russia, and the lower church - in the name of the Prophet John the Baptist.
There is a general Orthodox Orthodox gymnasium at the cathedral, as well as an adult and children's Sunday school, a sisterhood in honor of the saints Damian and Cosma. Divine services in the Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ are held daily.
