Brīvības iela 23 - Rīgas Kristus Piedzimšanas pareizticīgo katedrāle

I have posted this, one of the nicest churches in Riga before, but I think it's definitely worth at least a second look - in an autumn gear. The church has now also a two gold-plated cupolas which you can not see in this photo from 2008. The neo-byzantine style Orthodox church was once the most expensive building in Riga. It luckily survived both World Wars but Soviet power closed and partially demolished it (sawn down the crucifixes, re-melted the bells and converted it into a planetarium). Reconstruction of the building has been on-going since the end of 90ies. [full_width]
