Everyone who has at least once seen the Cathedral of Resurrection of Christ in Foros will remember its inimitable look forever. Astonishing in its beauty, it seems to soar between the sky and the sea. The cathedral was built in 1892 on the Red Rock and is one of the trademarks of the Crimea. In October 17, 1898 the cathedral was visited by Their Majesties Monarch Emperor Nikolay II with the Monarchess Aleksandra Fedorovna and little Great princesses. The cathedral on the Red Rock became world-famous. And not only because it was visited by the persons of exalted rank, but also due to the excellent Kuznetsovskiy tea. The image of the cathedral, that had become famous, decorated the square jars with tea. There appeared plenty of postcards with the Forosskaya Church. The most widespread were those with the view of the cathedral through the tunnel hacked through as early as 1848 during the construction of the road Yalta-Sevastopol. With accession to power of the Soviet rule the Bolsheviks threw down the crosses from the cathedral and destroyed almost everything. On the mosaic floor of the work of the famous Italian Salviatti they destroyed in many places the inlay of the varicolored minerals. In 1929 the cathedral was closed. After World War the Second the country was healing the wounds while the Forosskaya Cathedral was ever more going to ruin. Before and after the war there was a restaurant in the church. In 1990, by the decision of the Municipal Executive Committee of Yalta at the request of believers the Cathedral of Resurrection of Christ was transferred to the Russian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate. The cathedral was restored by the Father Peter, who was ordained archimandrite in 1992. Until August 20, 1997 - the day when he was killed - he devoted himself to the revival of the cathedral. In 2002 the cathedral celebrated its 110-th anniversary. The cathedral is very popular among the tourists. The excellent motor road as well as the footpaths lead to the cathedral. From the observation platform of the cathedral one can see the wonderful view of Foros and its neighborhood opening. In the night the cathedral is illuminated with projectors and seems to be hovering in the sky. This model reproduces the Cathedral in the view, which it has nowadays, after all the restoration work done. Among the peculiarities of the model one can mark out the rich detailed drafting and the details embossed with a golden foil, what gives a very attractive look to the model
