The Greek-Catholic Cathedral of the Transfiguration of the Lord

It is built to symbolically highlight some of the traditional Byzantine elements, while from the outside it looks modern. Noteworthy is the sacral interior decoration. The nave and the sanctuary are separated by the figurative wall called iconostasis - The Holy Scripture in icons, written by Ukrainian masters from Lviv.

The church is also the only church in Slovakia, the sacred decorations of which consist of a modern impressive mosaic according to the school of Father Mark Rupnik from Centro Aletti in Rome. His work can be admired in Lourdes, Fatima or Vatican city.

The author of the mosaic from natural materials in Spišská Nová Ves, which is placed in the altar part and chorus, is Father Kamil Dráb. The cathedral is among the youngest sacral buildings in the town (built 1991 - 1997).
