Photographer's Note

I knew thousands of churches during my trips but I never saw a similar.
This is Chesme Church, built in 1770 to celebrate the victory of Russia Against Turks in the Chesme Battle. During the Soviet times the church and the palace at side were used as a labor camp and storehouse and many after it was transformed in a museum and finally became a church again.

Conheci milhares de igrejas durante minhas andanças, mas nunca vi uma parecida com essa.
Essa é a Igreja de Chesma, erguida em 1770 para celebrar a vitória dos russos contra os turcos na Batalha de Chesma. Durante o regime soviético a igreja e o palácio foram usados como campo de trabalho forçado e armazém, depois virou museu e finalmente voltou a ser igreja.
