Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

My sister visited me last month. On an evening walk through downtown Sofia, we stopped at the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. This space has been closed each time I've gone past. On this particular night, the building was open. Saturday evening Vespers. Pictures are forbidden inside. I snuck an audio clip and a picture of the sunset from the foyer on my way out.

This is may be the most moving 15 minutes of This Bulgarian Life.

On the Saturday Between The Greats (the Easter Saturday between Death and Resurrection), please enjoy this moment of worship and beauty from the Bulgarian Orthodox tradition.
