St Demetrius of Saloniki's Church and Chulkovskoe Cemetery

St Demetrius of Saloniki's Church was built between 1795 and 1801 to serve as the cemetery church of the Chulkovskoe Cemetery. Originally it was to be dedicated to the Holy Spirit but this was reconsidered to avoid the church being associated with the revelries which took place on Holy Spirit Day (Whit Monday). In the 1820s a vestibule and a bell tower were added. The church remained open during the Soviet period.
