Naval Cathedral in the island-fortress of Kronstadt, St. Petersburg, Russia

Length 83.2 metres (273 ft)
Width 64 metres (210 ft)
Height (max) 70.6 metres (232 ft)
Dome's outer diameter 26.7 metres (88 ft)

From Wikipedia:
The Naval cathedral of Saint Nicholas in Kronstadt is a Russian Orthodox cathedral built in 1903–1913
as the main temple of the Baltic Fleet and dedicated to all fallen seamen.
The cathedral was closed in 1929, and was converted to a cinema, a House of Officers (1939)
and a museum of the Navy (1980).

Today it is a church again, being restored. The restoration program will be completed by Summer 2012.

Many, if not most of these buildings, no doubt beautiful, are hardly neo-byzantine, but just display some elements and details of neo-byzantine architecture, whilst a more eclectic and vernacular style predominates most of these fine buildings. The beautiful Florence synagogue may have some reference to byzantine-style but it is obviously more moorish in character, while other buildings display neo-classicism and neo-romanesque features.

Then what are the characteristics of neo-byzantine style? These can be just original interpretations of that style and if I'm not mistaking moorish style derives from byzantine style.

Yes you are mistaken, moorish style originates from morocco and byzantine from Greek-Constantinople, modern day Istanbul.

The characteristics of byzantine style, like the classical are strict in form and style, and as ui've already pointed out, some of these buildings may display byzantine features, but they are hardly neo-byzantine in design. They may be referred to as showing some 'free byzantine' detailing, and are not academic neo-byzantine.

The best examples of neo-byzantine architecture probably can be found in Greece or wherever Greek people have historically been located, such as Istanbul or alexandria in Egypt or where Greek people have migrated. Other forms of neo-byzantine constructed by those who adopted Orthodoxy from the Greeks, such as the Russians, Bulgarians etc shows their own vernacular elements to the style and can not be truly called neo-byzantine, although like everything in life there are always exceptions.
