A lovely orthodox Russian church complete with onion domes. Make sure you don't just look from the outside, it is very ornate inside and it is free to enter.

It's not the most beautiful church I've ever seen but it's very nice inside. The atmosphere of tranquility in this place was something I loved.

The Nevski cathedral is a beautiful Orthodox Church. Entrance is free of charge and will provide you with a view at the interior and the iconostasis. If your in old town, it's definitely worth a few minutes and a quick look.
