Cathédral Saint-Alexandre-Nevsky



Cathédral Saint-Alexandre-Nevsky


The bright skies of a clear autumn day 
accentuate the gold domes of Cathédral Saint-Alexandre-Nevsky.  
Although no photography was allowed inside, 
the view of the low sun reflecting on the domes was sufficient.


To read more about this cathedral 
and to see another view, 



bon dimanche

Alexandre Nevsky a réussi le tour de force d'être sanctifié par l'église catholique, glorifié par l'état soviétique et adoré par les cinéphiles !

«Louis» has seen this cathedral, but has not been inside. You really do a fine job with this series on Sunday. It is always a pleasure to visit.

Beautiful photo Genie. Such a shame you can't show us the inside. I'm sure it was amazing.
