Photographer's Note

The Orthodox Church of St. Michael and St. Constantine (Lithuanian: Šv. Konstantino ir Michailo Cerkvė) is a Russian Orthodox church in Vilnius, Lithuania. It was built in 1913 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty. It was built by I. Kolesnikov, and incorporates the Rostov and Suzdal architectural styles. On its consecration day of May 13, the church was visited by the former royal figure Grand-Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna, known at the time of consecration as "Sister Elizaveta", now a martyr within the Russian Orthodox Church. With its luxuriously decorated exterior and fanciful interior, this is one of the most splendid Orthodox churches in Vilnius.
A few years ago this church had green domes.
