St. Sophia Orthodox Greek church

St. Sophia is a Greek Orthodox cathedral (above and interior below) 

 Though judging from the name "Saint Sophia" it would seem the cathedral is named for a female saint of the Orthodox Christian tradition, the cathedral is actually dedicated to the "Holy Wisdom of God." ("Agia Sophia" in Greek). 

There is a lot to know about the history of the church and specifics of it's religion - which you can check out below.
