The Transfiguration Cathedral is the oldest building in Chernihiv, Ukraine, and one of the few survived buildings of pre-Mongol Rus. Construction of the cathedral was started by Prince Mstislav of Chernigov, and when he died in 1035, he was buried within its walls. The architecture of the cathedral is unusual and is a mix of a Roman basilica with a typical Byzantine church.
