Trinity Church (Церковь Святой Троицы) (9)

By | March 7, 2014


How about a Russian Orthodox Church located in the Antarctica? How about it that fact it is a permanently manned church? How about taking Orthodoxy to a whole different level?

The Trinity Church is a tiny Russian Orthodox church in Antarctica. The ambitious project to establish a permanent church or even a monastery on Antarctica was discussed and developed to fruition during the wild Russian 1990’s. A money gathering organization which was named “Temple for Antarctica” was allowed to go forth by Patriarch Alexius II and donations from across Russia poured into the organization. The project was won designed by Barnaul P.I. Anisifirov, S.G. Rybak and A.B. Schmidt and it looks to me that they did a fine job of architecture. I would also like to find who built it and not just designed it. But much information is hard to come by…

That is so wonderful and I think that the Russian Orthodox wooden churches are perfect from a fantastic country, such as Russia…
