The Orthodox Church of St. Michael and St. Constantine (Lithuanian: Šv. Konstantino ir Michailo Cerkvė; Russian: Церковь Святых Константина и Михаила) is a Russian Orthodox church in Vilnius, Lithuania. It was built in 1913 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty.[1] It was built by I. Kolesnikov, and incorporates the Rostov and Suzdal architectural styles. On its consecration day of May 13, the church was visited[citation needed] by the former royal figure Grand-Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna. She was known at the time of consecration as Sister Elizaveta and is now a martyr within the Russian Orthodox Church.
