A rather unusual design for a russian church I reckon, but then of corse it isn't an orthodox church but a lutheran one. Belonging to the minority of ingrian finns may have a say in this too?
As my wife is from Finland, her family origines from the area around lake Ladoga in today's Russia, I have some little knowledge about these people.
have a great weekend
