The Cathedral of Christ’s Nativity (Romanian: Catedrala Mitropolitană Nașterea Domnului) is the main cathedral of the Moldovan Orthodox Church in Central Chișinău, Moldova. It was commissioned by the governor of New Russia, Prince Mikhail Semyonovich Vorontsov, and Metropolitan Gavril Bănulescu-Bodoni in 1830. The cathedral was built in the 1830s to a Neoclassical design by Abram Melnikov (who had designed a similar church in Bolhrad). The cathedral was bombed during World War II, and its bell tower was destroyed by the local Communists in 1962. The new bell tower was constructed in 1997. During the Soviet period, worship was prohibited and the cathedral was transformed into an exhibition center. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nativity_Cathedral,_Chișinău

Rather remarkable isn’t it.
Truly underrated. I’m torn ~ I want more tourists to come to spark the economy, yet on the other hand, it would be nice for this to remain the sleepiest capital left on the planet . 🙂
I like those pictures. What type of filter did you use on them?
Thank you. Sorry for the delayed response. No filters, just editing sometimes with SnapSeed on my iPAD. When I use my Canon 6D, it really does a lot of the work for me. When you see rounded images up there, they are from a GoPro. The ‘smooth’ pics you see up there are “glamour glow” on SnapSeed. Hope that helps. Thanks for taking the time to look through and comment.
Jacqueline, I am always amazed at the sights and beauty you share!
Thank you and hope all is well with you and your family! xo 💐 💕
Oh wow ~ I’m so glad you like them ! Thank you ~
