Saint Sophia Cathedral in Polotsk

Saint Sophia Cathedral in Polotsk

 

According to Wikipedia, this might be the oldest church in Belarus. It was built between 1044-1066. The cathedral has been rebuilt several times throughout the centuries, and was affected by a fire in 1447.  Dramatized knight fights seem to attract quite a crowd!
