Thank You! I am trying to find infos about this building. From one sources it says, it is church, but others says - this is kremlin. Like market site, like messe or exhibitions site?

I agree with You - this is incredible building and I never seen other like this too! Shape styles influence can be seen from Neuschwanstein castle to Kazan kremlin. :)

it is a large shopping centre in old russian style with lots of "traditional" shops and many other interesting things!

thanks for this interesting view into "modern" Russia

Thanks Pasjoesja for great comment and interesting link! :) I thought before, this is one of new and restored churches sites. Just wonder a little why so many different belltower styles combined in one site. If I will get again another chance go Moscow, I will try go inside and capture insights.

Meanwhile, what I seen as very good sypmtoms in new architecture - Russia restoring and building new shurches!
