Russian Orthodox Church

Russian Orthodox Church located in Avenida Brasil near the "Parque Lezama" in San Telmo, Buenos Aires
Since the late 19th century there were several waves of immigration to Argentina. Among other nationalities many Russians found their new home in Buenos Aires. The Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Trinity was built for this growing community in San Telmo. The temple was inaugurated at the beginning of the 20th century.

The inside has beutiful enamelled detail. I think it was one of the last churches commissioned by St Tsar Nicholas.
