Overview

The presence of this church is representative of an international and cosmopolitan period in Florence, right at the beginning of the 20th century. The design, which is a square plan with polychrome domes, is the work of two architects, Preobrashenskij and Boccini, who designed it in 1902 to the style of Byzantine orthodox tradition. The interior is sumptuously decorated with icons and paintings by Lolli. The holy liturgy is orthodox and is in the Russian language.
