The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Holy Virgin Mary

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor and pilot Valius Video created this beautiful drone video of the largest Catholic Church in Russia.  The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in this heavily Eastern Orthodox country was conceived and built during the last days of the Tsarist Empire.  It was closed in 1938 during the height of Stalin's persecution of all forms of organized religion, and re-opened as a church a few years after the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991.  It's one of three Roman Catholic churches in the Moscow area.
