  • Thank you for the fascinating story.
  • This church was a gift of Zar Nicholas II Romanov, and was designed by a famous argentinean architect, Alejandro Christophersen (born in Cadiz, Spain, when his father was the consul of Norway). Then this diplomat was sent to Argentina, and his son, the architect, decided to get the Argentinean citizenship. He became a preferred architect of our aristocracy, and made several outstanding buildings like the Chancellery building ( originally the home of Leonor Castellanos de Anchorena, Marquess of the Vatican, due to his generosity to the Roman Catholic Church giving money to build churches and Orphan houses for the poor children.)+ Christophersen also designed the Santa Rosa de Lima Church, Avda. Blegrano 2100, BA, in a typical neo romanesque style. He was, as an academic architect, an eclectic one, as many others of that time. Very good in all styles, as this Russian church.

    • Excuse my two last comments. The system told me that I spent more time than the allowed one.
  • Yes! Right on the edge of Parque Lezama. Beautiful!
  • What an amazing building!
