Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Yalta

Not to be confused with numerous churches of the same name, this one is located in the Crimean city of Yalta in the Ukraine and was constructed 1891-1902 in honor of the late Tsar Alexander II.

The mosaic image of the cathedral's namesake saint on the south-eastern side of the building was manufactured by Salviati.
