Artist's Description


Alexander Nevsky Lavra, St. Petersburg, Russia
Nikon D5100, 18-250 Tanron

Saint Alexander Nevsky Lavra or Saint Alexander Nevsky Monastery was founded by Peter I of Russia in 1710 at the eastern end of the Nevsky Prospekt in St. Petersburg supposing that that was the site of the Neva Battle in 1240 when Alexander Nevsky, a prince, defeated the Swedes; however, the battle actually took place about 12 miles away from that site.1 The monastery was founded also to house the relics of St. Alexander Nevsky, patron of the newly founded Russian capital; however, the massive silver sarcophagus of St. Alexander Nevsky2 was relocated during Soviet times to the State Hermitage Museum where it remains (without the relics) today.
