This church was built at the end of 19th century. The church was built on a plot of the Russian Embassy for the needs of the Russian emigrants in the capital. The five small domes are made of gold (the central one is 19m high), and the bells were donated by the Russian King Nikolay II.
Concerning the architecture of the Russian Church, the temple was built in the tradition of Russian church architecture of 19th century-by reserved old Russian elements-the so-called "bulbs" (dome) in combination with traditional old Russian mosaics and woodcarvings, and it has the features of the modern architecture and painting.
