Aya Panteleymon Russian Orthodox Church

Hoca Tahsin Sokak No. 19, Karaköy, Istanbul

Food and tea served after Sunday service

Built in the late 19th century, this church used by the city’s Russian Orthodox community has survived many fires. Before the First World War, Russians travelling to Jerusalem for pilgrimage stopped over in Istanbul and used this church. The upper floors of the building are arranged as chapels. In the early 2000s, an artist from Moscow painted the new frescoes of the saints. There are also several older paintings of St Panteleymon.
