Gigantic church built in memory of Russian soldiers in Istanbul to be restored

Published on : Friday, February 15, 2013

A 50-meter church located on the ourskirts of Istanbul will be restored soon. The Orthodox Church was built in memory of the Russian soldiers and officers who died in one of the wars between the Russian and Ottoman empires.
The 50-meter high building, is a giant tomb that captures the imagination of contemporaries. Interestingly, the church was opened by Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolaevich of Russia. Unfortunately, during the First World War the memorial was destroyed and the Soviets did not want to restore it, in spite of proposals from the Turkish side.
But now on the basis of an agreement between Russia and Turkey, the church remains will be restored. The new attraction will be in Istanbul for tourists and religious people to visit in 2013.
