  • Step inside the Patriarchal Cathedral of St. Alexander Nevski and admire the grandeur that went into its design
  • Look up at domed ceilings, golden chandeliers, and intricate paintings displaying the Orthodox church's saints
  • Admire the neo-Byzantine facade and get lost in the detail of the lace-like stone sculpting of interior arches and friezes

Whether you're there out of religious devotion, or just want to see the grandiose beauty of this architectural landmark, the Cathedral of St. Alexander Nevski does not disappoint.

As impressive on the inside as it is from the outside, the cathedral features a 45-meter-high gold dome, some 25 tonnes of bells that can be heard from as far away as 30 km, and green marble for the royal throne area.
