Akhat-Jami is a mosque-cathedral in Donetsk, built between 1994 and 1999. It is named after Akhat Hafizovych Bragin, an entrepreneur and former president of the Shakhtar Donetsk football club, who died in a bomb attack in 1995. The building was originally intended to have only one minaret, but funding from Rinat Akhmetov enabled a second one to be built, which was eventually named after him.
The only remaining active mosque in the city, it was built in the 16th century in the Ottoman style.
The mosque is located in the central part of Kyustendil, next to a Roman Therms. The mosque is an impressive building with large dome and marble pillars and supports.
The Ahrida Synagogue is located in Balat, a once thriving Jewish quarter in the city. The foundations of the synagogue date from the late 1400s but may be older. Following a fire in the 1600s it was rebuilt in the Ottoman baroque style. It was later renovated in 1990-1991.
Built in 1475, work was completed in 1496 and the chapel was built on the model of the Riom Sainte-Chapelle. As a Sainte-Chapelle, it housed a relic of the Passion of Christ, a thorn in his crown.
Built at the beginning of the 18th century, inspired by Rome.
This cathedral succeeds three previous cathedrals, the last of which was razed to the ground after a French bombardment in 1554.
A romaneque church from the 12th century, the place of worship has an almost square choir, a semi-circular apse and a rectangular nave. The vault is inlaid with original ceramic pots to improve the acoustics.
Akershus Castle Church is the main church of the armed forces. In all probability, there has been a church or chapel on the fortress since the time of Håkon V Magnusson in the early 14th century. The present church is located in the south wing of Akershus Castle, where parts of the first floor were converted into a church after a fire in 1527. After the fire, the entire south wing was used as a church. In the years 1738-1740, a major restoration was carried out. The interior was modified again around 1820. In 1920 the church was partially restored by Holger Sinding-Larsen.
