ABC Wednesday - A


This A is the Alexander Nevski Cathedral in Sofia Bulgaria.

It was build between 1882 and 1912 in the Byzantine style and is named after the Russian Tsar Alexander Nevksi who defeated the Swedes in 1240.

It is certainly an impressive sight and dominates the skyline in central Sofia.
