Great looking place. Reminds me of Opatija on the Croatian coast. Same concept and architectural gems. Habsburg era resort towns.

Spa towns all have this nostalgic charm. That's nice.

The church was probably built during the first decade of the 20th century, during Czarist times. Russian churches of this period and style (russian revivalist) can be found at many european resort towns.

Nice France

I heard that huge Orthodox Church is under construction in Rome, very close to Vatican, so what? Rome is under control of Russian business?

Karlovy Vary has always been popular with Russian tourists, they make up more than 70% of all tourists who visit the town. The rest are mostly Germans visitng their "Karlsbad"

Some info about the church:

Quote:
St. Peter and Paul's Orthodox Church
The five-dome edifice was built with financial help of Russian aristocracy according to the design of Byzantine-Russian church in Ostankino near Moscow. The relief by sculptor M. Hiller represents Russian Tsar Peter I during construction of The Peacock House in 1711.

The Orthodox Church of St. Peter and Paul is the jewel of this part of Karlovy Vary. It was built in the typical Byzantine style. The church was completed in 1897. The church is a true copy of classical Byzantine buildings. The construction project was made by the architect Gustav Wiedermann from Franzensbad and it was based on building plans of the Russian academic Uchtomsk-. The interior of the church is decorated with paintings and icons, gifts of wealthy Russian guests from the close of the 19th century.
