A highlight on the Neroberg that is even visible from a great distance is the Russian Church one of the most beautiful and, in terms of its interior decorations most valuable sacred buildings in the city of Wiesbaden. Duke Adolf of Nassau had this memorial church, which was built from 1849 to 1855, erected to house the tomb of his deceased wife. Nassovian master builder Philipp Hoffmann who was also responsible for building St. Bonifaces and the synagogue on Michelsberg, was in charge here as well. After a trip to Russia, during which Hoffmann studied contemporary Russian architecture, he decided to take the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow as a model. The church which has come to be known as the "Greek Chapel" serves the Russian community in Wiesbaden today as their parish church. Behind the rectory lies the Russian cemetery where numerous graves of dukes and Princes from the 19th century can be found.
