Russian Church

Nassovian master builder Philipp Hoffmann, who was also responsible for building St. Boniface's Church and the Synagogue on Michelsberg, was also in charge of this construction. After a trip to Russia, during which Hoffmann studied contemporary Russian architecture, he decided to take the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow as a model.
The church, which has come to be known as the "Greek Chapel" serves the Russian community in Wiesbaden today as their parish church. Behind the rectory lies the Russian cemetery in which there are numerous graves of dukes and princes from the 19th century.
