Had to give it a rating of one lower than Excellent because it was being repaired/rennovated while we were there. A lot of areas were covered up and some were inaccessible. Best to go visit here when everything is finished...

While visiting the site of the Battle of the nations, we came across this beautiful church from 1913. It is well cared for, and very much loved by its growing and diverse congregation, so it seems. Get off the tram 2 stops before the Volkerschlachtdenkmal...More

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
