Explorer’s Scrapbook: Saint Petersburg Mosque

When the Saint Petersburg Mosque in Russia opened in 1913, it was the largest mosque in Europe. It is so large that it can accommodate up to 5,000 worshippers! The dome and both minarets are covered with mosaic ceramics of a sky blue color, and the facades are decorated with sayings from Koran using the characteristic Arabian calligraphy. If you are in St. Petersburg, it is worth a visit to see its beauty.
