Impressive church with golden domes and valuable iconostasis

This church was built for numerous Russian guests. There was also an Anglican church, which
was pulled down some years ago. The cross-shaped layout is typical for a Russian orthodox
church as well as the colours of the domes; the blue colour symbolizes God’s wisdom. Inside
the iconostasis , the magnificently decorated partition wall between the room of the believers
and the one which is only for the priest, shows the different patron saints of the orthodox
church. Amongst them there is St. Alexandra to whom the church is dedicated.
