Although it suffered decades of disrepair and decay, this massive, deep blue-domed, Classical-style cathedral, with its impressive array of 24 Corinthian columns, is just beginning to be restored to its original splendor.

This is a picturesque church that is perhaps worth a small detour if you are particularly interested in Russian orthodox churches. It was recently renovated and the interior isn't particularly impressive. In other words, the blue domes are its most notable feature. However, I was...More
