Split

Split is a large town and a very busy harbour situated in the central region of the East Adriatic coast. It's on a peninsula between the Castelian Bay and the Split Channel. After WO II Split became one of the strongest economic, administrative and cultural centres of Dalmatia.

Although all tales about Split inevitably begin with the Palace from which Emperor Diocletian ruled his world, this town is nevertheless much more than merely a part of the Roman heritage from which it sprang. Split is one of the few cradles in which the traditions of the West, Antique and Christian, have been rocked. Without them the world of today would be different and poorer At times the outcome of this task of the mother of all civilization was paradoxical: the structure amidst the town of Split, meant to be the mausoleum of the great Roman Emperor and even greater persecutor of Christianity has been turned into the most ancient Catholic Cathedral in the world:

The mausoleum:

Definitively the nicest church on the Balkans








The Memorial Cathedral St. Alexander Nevski was built in Sofia from 1904 to 1912 in honor of the Russian and Bulgarian soldiers that died for the Liberation of Bulgaria. It is built in a Neo-Byzantine style and is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox cathedrals in the world. The cathedral's gold-plated dome is 45 m high, with the bell tower reaching 50.52 m. The temple has 12 bells with total weight of 23 tons, the heaviest weighing 12 tons and the lightest 10 kg. The St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral in Sofia occupies an area of 3170 m² and can take 5,000 people inside.


There is a museum of Bulgarian icons inside the cathedral's crypt. The church claims that the museum contains the largest collection of Orthodox icons in Europe with over 1000 icons.
