Absolutely delightful designs. I hope that, with the amount of classical church designs in Russia, Russian architects might begin to re-think and re-invent the classical language to make it richer.

Any architecture history experts know the origin of the onion domes? Orthodox churches are easily the most beautiful structures on Earth.

There's an article on wikipedia about onion domes. But I haven't checked the references. And Zagrayevsky is not a reliable source. I like to think the onion dome was meant to represent a burning candle.

Very much like on this thread! One question though, are the new churched rebuildings of old churches that was destroyed by the communists? Or are they brand new in design?

Actually there are several different between styles of Orthodox countries. For examle, Gergian, Greece, Romanian, Balkans and Russian Orthodox cherches has some different which can distinguish each other. And most of them still builds in traditional Orthodox style.

One question about wood.
Does the wood have good properties against intense cold (as not only in russia, but I also saw tradititonal wood buildings in Scandinavia e.g.) or is it just that the wood it's easier to get because of big forests?
I think main reason why in some territories using wood more then stone for building is reachest of local forests. Not only Russia and Scandinavia used wood as construction mateals. You can find traditional wooden buildings on the Ukraine, Japan and even some tropical places.
