In architectural terms, the pseudo-Russian style is clearly visible. Cathedral in Borisov can be safely called the most prominent representative of such architecture on territory of Belarus.

At the site of the construction of the cathedral was a wooden church, built in the early 17th century, but burned down. After this event, through the efforts of the St. Petersburg architect Petra Merkulova, a project of an Orthodox church is being developed, which we can see today.
