Transfiguration Cathedral of Our Savior (1713) was erected on the site of the royal Church of Constantine and Elena which was a part of the prince's palace ensemble. The cathedral, topped with five solid domes, was built by Yaroslavl's master-craftsmen. An arcatured frieze encircles the cupola drums, windows are embellished with decorative casings.
