I saw this Russian orthodox church from my tour bus. It has a very nice architecture, especially the golden dome at the top. The churcuh was built in memory of the Russians who fought against Napoleon in the Battle of Nations.

The Saint Alexi Memorial Church in Leipzig commemorates the thousands of Russian soldiers who fell in the Battle of Nations (1813) and can easily be combined with a visit to the Volkerschlachtdenkmal and Sudfriedhof. It is open daily 10-17h with a pause from 13.15-14h. A...More
