North of Brivibas Bulvaris is Esplanade, a shady park with lime trees. On the south side of this park the Russian Cathedral of Christ Nativity built in the 19th century for the city's Russian community.
The outside is mediocre, but the inside is worth more than a peek. It has recently been renovate. The walls are decked out with a maroon and green swirly pattern.
The church furnishing is elaborate as is customary in Russian churches. You will have to go yourself to see this splendour as taking photos is not allowed.
