  • Church of Christ's Resurrection (Храм Воскресения Христова) is Orthodox church of the Simferopol and Crimean Diocese of the of the Moscow Patriarchate over the village of Foros. The height of the building above sea level is 412 meters. Monument of Russian architecture of the late XIX century. The church was commissioned by a local landowner to commemorate Alexander III's survival in the Borki train disaster 1888—1892. The landowner's name was Alexander Kuznetsov; he was a tea trader from Moscow. Nikolai Chagin, a celebrated architect from Wilno, designed the church in a bizarre blend of Rastrelliesque Baroque, Russian Revival, and Byzantine Revival. The last King Nicholas II of Russia, and his wife prayed at the church on the day of the 10th anniversary of the Borki incident. After the Russian Revolution the church was closed for worshippers, its priest exiled to Siberia and frescoes overpainted.
