Onion Domes

This isn't a photo taken in Moscow but 2 minutes walk from the Royal palace in Copenhagen. It's the St. Aleksander Nevskij Church which is a Russian Orthodox church shared with all the Orthodox Christians in Denmark. It's named after the Russian folk hero Alexander Nevsky, best known for his victory over the Teutonic Knights. The church was a gift from the Danish Princess Dagmar when she married Prince Alexander of Russia who later became Zar Alexander III.
