Archangel Michael Russian Church Aug 06, 2013
Archangel Michael Russian church is one of the rare Orthodox Christian churches that survived in Baku. This place does not look much like church aside of small tower that can be seen from outside. When you go inside the courtyard, you will be surrounded with the living quarters and in order to get in the church you’ll have to go on the second floor. There is long hall that doubles for the church covered with lots of wooden icons and kind of frescoes. When I was there, they had lots of candles burning and it was not that easy to breathe. It is interesting to see how little pockets of different religions can survive in no welcoming environment.
