The construction of this fascinating structure started in 1844 at the place of the old wooden church located at the corner of the modern Zankovetska and Holovna Streets and had been initiated by Father Andrew Vasylovych, its guardian.

 

Due to financial troubles (as it often happened with other religious structures in Chernivtsi) the construction continued for almost two decades and only was completed thanks to  the assistance from Bukovynian orthodox religion fund in 1862.
