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.

We decided to go there at night after seeing a few nice pictures but it is currently covered by scaffoldings. Not so far from there, less than five min.by car there is the Volkerschlachtdenkmal which also worths a night visit to take some pictures.
