St. Isaac's Cathedral, St. Petersburg

Photograph by Keenpress, National Geographic

Gold-limned biblical scenes fill the cupola interior of St. Isaac's Cathedral, one of St. Petersburg's most decorated churches. It's also the city's largest Russian Orthodox cathedral, though during Soviet years it was turned into a secular museum. Today, it's both a place of worship and a museum.
