The Alexander Nevsky Chapel.
Yaroslavl

The Alexander Nevsky Chapel of was built in late 19th or early 20th century on the commission of Yaroslavl merchants. With its stylized forms inspired by 17th century Yaroslavl architecture, the structure blends well with the ensemble of adjacent streets. Restored by the Central Restoration Workshops (Yaroslavl Branch) in 1980s.
