This is a beautiful cathedral which is still used for religious services. Entrance is free. If you go inside, keep quiet and enjoy the unique atmosphere. Women may feel more comortable covering their heads with a scarf, though it is not required.
Outside, there is a a fountain and nice patch of grass where people like to gather, to study, draw, read, or just enjoy the weather. Buy some Russian ice cream from a nearby vendor and you'll have a perfect afternoon!
