Archangel Mikhail Cathedral

Cathedral in Arkhangelsk

The construction of this 72m-high cathedral, which stands on the site of a prerevolutionary cathedral that was destroyed by the Soviets in 1938, is due to be completed in 2018-19. Even unfinished, the cathedral, with its four golden onion domes, is already a local landmark. Construction began in 2008 as part of a drive by the Russian Orthodox Church to build scores of new churches across Russia.
