    The Russian Orthodox Cathedral

    The Russian Orthodox Cathedral rises its gilded cupolas over the treetops in the Esplanade Park at Brivibas Boulevard.

    The church was built in 1876 and was turned into a planetarium in the Soviet era. Luckily for us, the practical studies of the sky changed into more theoretical ones after 1991.

    Sadly I was only able to see the cathedral from the outside. This was due to time constraints and having to get to the airport. It was impressive and I understand that inside it is as impressive.

    Orthodox cathedral

    This Church, builded of course in a typical Orthodox style, has one big cupola in the middle and 4 smaller cupolas on the side of the church.
    The inside is amazing: plenty of decoration and colours!

    Just outside the old town, you'll find this nice cathedral with its characteristic dark and golden cupolas.
