One of the most recognizable churches in the Bay area is the Holy Virgin Cathedral, which is a Russian Orthodox Cathedral. Known for its five towering 24-karat gold-dipped domes, its intricate and descriptive mosaics (also dipped in gold), and its beautiful murals. You can simply make time for a walk through, or you can wait for Mass, when one of the three choirs fills the Byzantine-style auditorium with rich harmonies and intense energy.
