The Church of St. Igor of Chernigov in Peredelkino

In recent years, a lot new churches were built in Russia. Of course not all of them are interesting from an architectural point of view, but there are pleasant exceptions.

For example, take a look at the Church of the Holy Prince Igor of Chernigov located in the suburban village of Peredelkino in Moscow.
