I like this. Nice shot.

I admit to being surprised to see a Bulgarian cathedral bearing the name of a medieval Russian prince, despite the same religion! I suppose it might be because Alexander Nevsky could have been made a Saint (I presume he was in fact which might explain it!). I have probably answered my own question!

Best wishes, Andy

Alexander II (Russian emperor at the time when Bulgaria became independent after 500 years in 1878) was named after Alexander Nevsky - a medieval Russian prince. Independence was achieved after the war headed by Russia. In the war killed 200,000 soldiers (from Russia, Finland, Romania and Bulgaria) who fought for the freedom of Bulgaria. Grateful Bulgarian people collect money for this cathedral,built in 4 years from 1908 to 1912.
