TIME TRAVEL WITH ROMANOV FAMILY: FEODOROVSKY CATHEDRAL
In the distance, floating above treetops one can see the golden dome of the Feodorovsky Cathedral. As you walk through the tree-lined alley, the cathedral emerges.
Feodorovsky Cathedral was consecrated in 1912 and restored to its pre-revolutionary glory in 2005. Above the parish entrance are the icons of Nicholas and Alexandra and the icon of St Seraphim of Sarov, the last Tsar’s and Tsarina’s favorite saint.

To get to the imperial entrance you need to walk around the cathedral to an area where you encounter the Nicholas II memorial, along with the four oak trees planted by Nicholas and Alexandra in 1909. At the base of the memorial, fresh flowers are often placed next to the picture of the heir, Tsesarevich Alexei.
Tourists and Orthodox pilgrims alike come from all over to see the Cathedral and pay their respects to the last Russian Emperor and his family. Many believe that the Feodorovsky Cathedral represents a new hope for the Russian people.
Please watch both videos below to get a much better idea of what I am talking about.
