We were walking around downtown and saw this beautiful church. It looks amazing with the gold and green facade. It is also very beautiful inside. It is not very big so it has a cozy feel inside.

This is a Russian Orthodox church and I loved the design and outside style. Inside it was small and dark. Much better to enjoy the outside view.
