Discover the Church of the Epiphany in St. Petersburg, Russia with @mokhnachewa.
Completed in 1888, the red-brick church has an intricately decorated facade, featuring tiled mosaics, gilded reliefs, and "kokoshniki" - medieval Russian decorations in the shape of a traditional headdress like a tiara. With its large arched windows, single gold dome and slender bell tower, the church, standing right on the banks of the Ekateringofka River, recalls a ship in full sail.

Now Discovering Norway with @larsmathisen_photography.
The Norwegian Sea is rich in species and supports large populations of fish, marine mammals and seabirds. A wide variety of marine mammals can be found in the Norwegian Sea. Northern bottlenose whales, orcas, blue whales, fin whales, humpback whales and minke whales all pass through the Norwegian Sea as they migrate between the warmer waters where they spend the winter months and the northern feeding grounds where they find plankton and other prey in the summer months. #thediscoverer
