Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

This cathedral laid out in the form of a Greek cross and crowned with gilded onion domes would be quite at home in Moscow. The walls, vaults and interior pillars are decorated with paintings inspired by Byzantine art, and the iconostasis forms a series of five arcades made from Carrara marble.
