There also was an Elbe 2 lightvessel once (also called "Bürgermeister Bartels"), today its name is "Atlantis" since 2006 and it is used as a passenger ship. Now with different colours, blue and white instead of red.

Sielenbach (Bayern): Wallfahrtskirche Maria Birnbaum

I don't believe that there was a direct link.
I can't imagine, that a 17th century "ordinary" Bavarian or Italian architect could have known anything about Russian architecture or vice versa.

Perhaps both sides had been inspired independently by similar Byzantine models.
Russian architects knew Byzantine churches in Greece or Constantinople, Italian/Bavarian architects knew San Marco in Venice, perhaps other Byzantine churches in southern Italy too.
From all the three countries pilgrimaged also people to the Holy Land, where they could see Byzantine churches on their way and in Jerusalem.

The most "Russian" Bavarian Baroque church is this one: the pilgrimage church "Maria Birnbaum" (St. Mary Pear Tree) near Aichach, by Constantin Bader, 1661-68.

München (Bayern): Herz-Jesu-Kirche

A modern parish church in Munich, the Sacred Heart Church in Munich-Neuhausen, a glass cuboid with a facade, which can be opened like a huge porch, so that people on the forecourt can follow the mass, 1997-2000 by Allmann/Sattler/Wappner.

The architecture seen in this examples is really great - it is sad that it is wasted on religion.

Berlin: Verwaltungs-und Magazingebäude der Staatsoper Unter den Linden

Stalinist Neoclassicism in a rather elegant form: the administration and depot building of the State Opera Unter den Linden, 1952-54 by Richard Paulick.
Paulick's design is a modern interpretation of the style of Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff, Frederick's the Great architect (Sanssouci), who had planned the Opera House itself.
Aristocratic Baroque Neoclassicism under a communist regime

I always found the Verwaltungs-und Magazingebäude by Paulick a very interesting building. And by far the best Stalinist building in Berlin. It fits just perfectly in between the historic structures along Unter den Linden. Frederick would surely approve! XD

Do you by chance know were the statues and vases on the parapet wall come from? I always guessed from some torn down baroque building... And facing St. Hedwig theres a balcony with putti holding lanterns. They can't be Stalinist...
