From Sts. Peter and Paul, follow 7th St. until you get to Starkweather. Turn right. St. Theodosius is in the next block on your left side, but you'll see it as soon as you turn. St. Theodosius Russian Orthodox Cathedral, built in 1911, is the oldest Orthodox church in Cleveland and a fine example of classic Russian orthodox architecture. The cathedral's onion domes can be seen throughout Tremont and the near west side. Since December of 2006, the church has been lighted at night and can be seen throughout Cleveland's center.
St. Theodosius is perhaps best known for its appearance in the 1977 film, The Deer Hunter with Robert DeNiro and Meryl Streep. St. Theodosius Cathedral is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
