I love French churches as much as everyone, but you sometimes need to shake things up. This Russian Orthodox is the perfect church to visit if you've had a little too much Catholic architecture in France, and if you've never been to Russia and don't plan to go for a while.

Very cool looking Russian style church, with crazy colorful towers and spires and intricate pre revolution opulence.
