The Resurrection of Christ Orthodox Cathedral of Korçë (Albanian: Katedralja “Ngjallja e Krishtit”) is the main orthodox church in Korçë, Albania. It is painted in pink, blue and brown.[1] The cathedral was completely rebuilt in 1992 after the previous church on this site, St. George cathedral, was destroyed by the Communist authorities in 1968.[2]

Inside, the modest white interior is dominated by a huge carved wooden iconostasis.[3]
