Description of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Alexander Nevsky

Construction of Saint Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Yalta started in 1881 in honor of medieval Russian leader Alexander Nevsky, the patron saint of Emperor Alexander II, who was assassinated by revolutionaries in March of 1881. This medieval Russian ruler was a beloved ruler by the Russian monarchs. He became famous as a military commander who defeated European Catholic Northern Crusades sent to re- baptize Orthodox Christians of Russians. He also managed to defeat Swedish forces in a stunning and quick victory on the Neva river, hence he got a nickname Nevsky. At the same time he was responsible for buying Russian slaves after devastating Mongol invasion of 1238-40. People he bought back resettled deserted cities all over Russia. Saint Alexander Nevsky Cathedral was designed in a traditional medieval Russian architecture.
