The Cathedral of the Saviour's Transfiguration

The Transfiguration Cathedral (Russian: Спасо-Преображенский собор, Spaso-Preobazhensky sodor) on a steep bluff[1] overlooking the Amur River in Khabarovsk stands 96 meters tall and is supposed to be the third tallest church in Russia after St. Isaac's Cathedral and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. It was built over 2001-2004[2] to a traditional design reminiscent of Konstantin Thon's works. The church is surmounted by four Ukrainian-style gilded domes, the central one being the largest. Its spectacular location on a hill was chosen by Patriarch of Moscow and all Rus' Alexis II of Moscow during a helicopter flight over Khabarovsk.[3]
