    Thought you might like to know. Church at night, it's Lappeenranta Parish Church built 1913-1924. It was first intented to be an orthdox Church for Russian Army, hence the typically orthodox domes.

    It must have been pretty cold over there too. Snow and blue sky : perfect for nice pictures.
