Take a tour of Alexander Nevsky Church in Potsdam in Potsdam, Germany – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
In Potsdam, Germany stands a little pink church that marks the beginning of an architectural movement.
This is the Alexander Nevsky Church, built by the Russian architect, Vasily Stasov, in 1826.
This unique church flaunts four small golden spired domes surrounding a larger central dome.
It is famous for being the first building created in the Russian Revival architectural style.
The style spread from this one place across the Europe, and especially into Russia.
The humble, though beautiful, Alexander Nevsky Church is the forerunner of a great national movement.
