This is a newly built church built with money donated by a Russian businessman. We went on a sunny day with the light reflecting off the white walls and golden domes, it took some amazing pictures.

This is really the spot to visit. The location is ideal, the church is very beautiful and very light insight when you compare with other Russina churches. And for me the thing that was the most special: the holy trinity is female over here.
