The Cathedral Church


According to the Julian calendar, Orthodox Christians in my country celebrate
Christmas on 7th January. They celebrate Christmas Eve tonight so
Merry Christmas to them and all Orthodox Christians who celebrate this holiday on this date!


In the photo you can see The Cathedral Church of Nativity of the Theotokos which is located in the center of Sarajevo. It is built in Baroque style between 1863 and 1868.
