Ooo...it's shiny! What are the statues along the top?
Different saints and angels-- well, it's a church, heh, so I guess you knew that ^^. I don't know who they are exactly, but it's funny you should ask. I was just re-reading Crime and Punishment for my Dostoevsky class, and Raskolnikov paused on a bridge and looked over at this cathedral and mentioned that it was the best place to see it from, since he could make out the details of each statue. It was so cool to read that and know exactly where he was standing! (Of course, I also have to mention that he must have much better eyes than I do, since it's about three blocks away.)
