Church of St. Alexis in the Rogozhskaya Sloboda

The Church of St. Alexis in the Rogozhskaya Sloboda is an Orthodox church of the Intercession Deanery of the Moscow Diocese. Built in 1748-1751 in the Rogozhskaya Sloboda in the Elizabethan Baroque style. The temple has the status of an object of cultural heritage of federal significance.

The architecture of the church refers to the mature Elizabethan Baroque. To the quadrangle from the east, there is a semicircular apse. In the west, there is a two-line refectory with a three-tiered bell tower. The walls are evenly dissected by pilasters and completed with wide cornices. Wide arched windows are decorated with figured platbands. The windows of the second floor of the quadrangle are crowned with endings in the form of torn pediments.

The church is located on the “arrow” intersecting at an acute angle of the streets of Nikoloyamskaya and Stanislavsky (the former Bolshaya and Malaya Alekseevsky). Previously, it completed the prospect of the ancient Vladimir tract. At the entrance to Moscow the church of St. Alexis was perceived as part of an architectural ensemble, standing almost opposite the church of Sergius of Radonezh.

Located at the address: Stanislavskogo street, 29, building 1 (Nikoloyamskaya street, 60).
