Russian courtyard (Russian buildings), located in Jerusalem, is considered one of the oldest areas of the city. It is located not far from the Old City and is part of Russian Palestine.
At the Russian Compound you can see the Trinity Cathedral, the Russian Spiritual Mission, as well as the courtyards that receive pilgrims. The area of Russian buildings is 68 000 square meters, it was founded in 1860 at the initiative of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society.
Initially, the Russian Compound was intended to accommodate Orthodox pilgrims arriving in Jerusalem. In 1964, the buildings that are part of the Russian courtyard complex (except for the Holy Trinity Cathedral) were sold by the USSR government to the Israeli state.
