Trinity Cathedral is an important cultural landmark in the Russian city of St. Petersburg.  Consecrated in 1835, it's considered one of the best examples of the Empire architectural style.  The Eastern Orthodox church is located just south of the Admiralty complex on Izmaylovskiy Prospekt.  Left in a state of abandon and almost closed during the Stalinist 30's, the church underwent a major restoration in the 1990's but was heavily damaged by a fire in 2006.  Check it out from above in this excellent drone video by Minglam.
