Alexander Nevsky

Alexander nevsky (Ural, 1889)

This is Alexander Nevsky, a Russian Orthodox saint that is considered heavenly patron for the city of Saint Petersburg, Russia. His memory is celebrated by the Church today, on September, 12. This is the day when his relics were brought to the city in year 1724 and placed in Alexander Nevsky Lavra marking one of the most significant events in the process of foundation of this city. A massive Cross Procession is held today every year along the city's main street, the Nevsky Prospect. The city of Ekaterinburg has historic ties with St. Petersburg and has a major Alexander-Nevsky-Novo-Tikhvinsky monastery in the city center.
