Cathedral of Christ the Saviour - This cathedral was built in the 1990's after the original was demolished in 1931 under the orders of Stalin to built a new 'Palace of Soviets'.  The palace was never built, and instead the world's largest open-air swimming pool occupied the site from the 1950's to the early 1990's.
