One of the most beautiful churches in the city of Hamburg is the Russian Orthodox Gnadenkirche, ‘church of mercy’, in the Karolinenviertel. The round church was built in 1907 and for almost a century served as an Evangelic Lutheran house of God. As the number of churchgoers dwindled, in 2004 the church was taken over by the parish of Saint John of Kronstadt. After extensive renovations to suit its new congregation, the church now boasts gorgeous frescoes and exquisite iconostasis created by Moscow’s best icon painters.
