You have a unique opportunity to see the New Temple and the Old Temple. The old temple is a stone building built in the style of classicism: a two-light single-headed quadruple with a refectory and a multi-level bell tower. The new temple is a four-pillar five-domed brick building, built in the Neo-Byzantine style, with the same three thrones.
Stop by the picturesque Alexander Nevsky Church to see a real mix of styles and eras - the church itself is designed in the classical traditions of Neo-Russian architecture, and next to it is a real castle built in the style of estates of British aristocracy. Another picturesque place nearby is a suspension bridge over the Moskva River.
