Туда и Сюда - Around Town pt. I

Cathedral of Christ the Savior.  This one was built in the 90s, Stalin had the original torn down and a huge outdoor swimming pool sat in its place for many years.

Ahh, a lion!

The statue "A Worker and Kolkhoz Woman".  So much better seen in person.  I don't care who you are: this thing is inspiring.

The Cosmonaut Memorial.  The memorial is in the shape of the trajectory of Yuri Gagarin's launch, I believe.
