The Russian Orthodox Cathedral of Holy Trinity was designed by architect I.I.Epinger for Orthodox pilgrims in 1860-1864. The cathedral, a traditional three-nave cross-shaped domed structure, follows the blueprint of the buildings of the Russian St. Panteleymon's Monastery on Mount Athos (Greece). The cathedral was consecrated in 1872, with Prince Nicholai Nicholayevich the Elder present. The Cathedral is owned by the Russian Mission in Jerusalem.

The Russian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Alexey was built as a memorial to those Russian soldiers who were killed in the battle of Leipzig in 1813. The building was designed by architect V.A.Pokrovsky and was built in 1912-1913. The cathedral is a single-dome construction with hipped roof. The cathedral with its traditional Russian style stands out from the German architectural environment. In 1945 Marshal Zhukov ordered for the cathedral to be fully renovated. Now the Cathedral is owned by the German eparchy of the Russian Orthodox Church.
