St. Petersburg Kazan Cathedral

Modeled on St. Peter's basilica in Rome, the mighty Kazan cathedral looms over Nevsky Prospekt, the city's main boulevard. It was built in 1811, turned into the Museum of the History of Religion and Atheism during the communist era and finally returned to the Russian Orthodox Church in 1996.
