The cathedral is the largest Russian Orthodox Cathedral in the city, it was ordered by the Tsar Alexander and it took 40 years to construct, it was finalized in 1858. The Cathedral’s main dome is plated in gold and it rises 333ft, the following photographs were made from the exterior of the dome that it is open to the public, I spent a couple of hours there as the vistas are incredible.
