«Stunning Blue Cupolas of Trinity Cathedral in Orekhovo (Moscow)»

The central blue cupola of the one domed Cathedral of the Holy Vivifying Trinity in Orekhovo-Borisovo near Borisovo Ponds reaches out into the skies with its cross and the total height of 70 meters (230 feet). The church was built according to designs of architect Vladimir Kolosnitsyn in 2001-2004 in Neo-Byzantine (Byzantine Revival) style, to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of Christianity in Russia. Its magnificent blue cupolas (besides the main cupola in the middle, the church has a bell-tower and side chapels with smaller cupolas, but of the same semi-dome shape, characteristic to the ancient Byzantine architecture) are shining on the sun like blue pearls, while the domes of the church can be see seen from far away in the area of Kashirskoe highway, on the way from/to Domodedovo airport.
