Great shot! Really astonishing. Looks like a confectioners work ... or Cinderella's Castle in Disney World. ;-)

Glad to know, You rated my nighshoot! :)

It is one of best looking and worldwide well known churches from Russia. TV political observers and journalists often record "official reports" from Kremlin, while standing with background of this cathedral.

Thanks for great link from DisneyWorld sights! This building really looks like old time fairy tales castle.

Meanwhile, when I get accomodations in Izmailovo hotel site, I seen near hotel another church site. But after comming home and browsing web, and also after comments by Moscow fellows I get info, that new site is not a church at all, but only modern shopping - exhibitions - entertaining centre.
