Circles, Naval cathedral of Saint Nicholas, Saint Petersburg

Dome of the Naval cathedral of Saint Nicholas, Kronstadt, an island at the outskirts of Saint Petersburg. This Russian orthodox cathedral was built in 1903–1913 as the main church of the Russian Navy dedicated to all fallen seamen. Inside the walls of the cathedral you can read the names of all (known) fallen seamen.

I went there one day before the big Navy Parade, when preparation was in full swing. Beautiful and sad at the same time.
