Russia Plans ‘World’s Biggest’ Orthodox Church


World’s Largest, 40,000! Capacity, Orthodox Cathedral Planned Where Russia’s Last Emperor was Murdered

40,000 Christians should fit inside this cathedral. They plan to build it in the area near where the family of Tsar Nicholas II was killed, and it may become one of the biggest pilgrimage destinations in all of Russia. It would measure 118,000 sq ft and have two floors with churches on each floor, totalling roughly 200,000 sq. ft.
