This door photographed by Raphael Cruz is actually a side door of the Aleksandar Nevski orthodox cathedral in Sofia, Bulgaria. This memorial church is considered to be one of the finest pieces of architecture in the Balkans and is definitely Sofia's number one attraction. The church was built in honour of the 200,000 Russian casualties of the War of Liberation in 1877–78 and was financed by public donations. Built between 1882 and 1924, It is a fabulous structure, with domes and half-domes and glitters with masses of gold leaf donated by the Soviet Union. The church has the capacity for 5000 worshipers and its services are magnificent, rich with incense, candlelight and resonate chanting.
