Catedrala Sf. Alexander Nevsky

Sofia m-a impresionat din multe puncte de vedere. Insa, undeva pe primele locuri se gaseste Catedrala Alexandre Nevsky. De regula, in timpul plimbarilor pe care le fac pentru a documenta, invat, fotografiez si trec mai departe. Nu a fost cazul aici, asa ca m-am intors din nou si din nou sa vad biserica aceasta. Mi s-a parut fascinanta, asa ca am fotografiat-o cu mult drag.

Colega mea, Alexandra Palconi, i-a dedicat un articol intreg in cadrul proiectului Eastern Chronicles, articol pe care il puteti citi aici: http://easternchronicles.com/st-alexander-nevsky-cathedral-one-of-the-largest-orthodox-cathedrals-in-the-world/

Am sa o citez cu cateva date legate de aceasta catedrala:

“the cornerstone of the cathedral wasn’t laid until 1882, and most of the structure was built between 1904 and 1912. The cathedral was created in honour of the Russian soldiers who died during the Russian-Turkish War of 1877-1878, after which Bulgaria was liberated from Ottoman rule. Its name comes from Alexander Nevsky, who was a Russian prince. (Between 1916 and 1920, when Russia and Bulgaria belonged to opposing alliances in WWI, the cathedral’s name was changed to Saints Cyril and Methodius.)”
