This magnificent eastern Orthodox cathedral is one of the largest in the world. Its most striking feature is its great, gold-plated dome that’s 45 metres high. The architecture is neo-Byzantine – it was built only in the early 20th century in memory of the 200,000 Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian and Bulgarian soldiers, who died in the Russo-Turkish War, 1877–1878.

Inside, it’s vast size can hold 10000 people. The interior is lavishly decorated with marbles of many colors, great mural paintings, and 82 icons. In the crypt of the church there are many iconic religious art paintings. A church as great as this usually has a relic – this one has what seems to be Alexander Nevsky’s rib.
