    It doesn't look like. Ortodox churches are not build in gothic, renaissance, baroque styles etc (in this case neo-gothic), so all the currents which came from catholic countries. If I'm not wrong (in which case Dalibor will correct me), you can find only elements of western architecture in Orthodox architecture, but never whole plan and structure of the building. There may be few exceptions, but from what I know from art history, it works like this. Orthodox churches quite stuck to Byzantine model. You can also compare the icons from Orthodox church which didn't chage in centuries and the ones in Catholic church, who very going through all the European styles and periods.

    Anyway let's wait for Sviatogor's answer.

    I can see everyone likes the 2nd build. It is a beautiful neo-Gothic style architecture.

    The building is located in the village Gervyaty, Grodna region, almost on the border with Lithuania and not far from Lithuanian capital of Vilnius. It is Catholic Church and the service is conducted in Belarusian, Polish and Lithuanian.

    There are more pictures of the building from exterior and interior: http://barcauan.ru/?p=676

    Sorry, I meant Puslovsky’s Palace.
    Not because I like it, I like Gedymina Castle most. I am just curious about Brest.

    The Pulkovsky's palace is near Brest, south-west of Belarus and it's currently under reconstruction.

    No. It is Roman Catholic. RCC have strong presence in Belorussia. 13% of population there is Roman Catholic.
    Ai Loculi is right. I did nt see her answer previously :)

    Church of  Annunciation in Vitebsk. (Belorussian: Дабравешчанская царква; Russian: Благовещенская церковь), According to sources from XVI to XIX century it was built by Lithuanian Grand Duke Algirdas in XIV century. There is folk tradition that this Church was established by Grand Princess Olga in 974 (That could be found in Chronicle of Vitebsk from XVII century). Modern Archeologists and Historians speculate about XII century as most accurate date. They base such dating on visibile traces of Byzantine architects and artists. Polish King Sigismund III took Churhc from Orthodox and gave it to Greek Catholics, there were two reconstructions, first in 1714, and latter in 1759 hich added some baroque elements. In 1832 Russian Govenrment transfered builing back to Orthodox Church. Subsequentually there was new recocntruction. Church suffered lot in World War II and Khruschev in 1961 ordered demolision in order to make place for tramway turn bridge. In 1971 Architects led by Mihail Karger started their research, remenants of Church were conservated in 1977. From 1993 to 1998 Church was reconstructed to resemble look from XIII century. Main architect was G. A. Lavrecki.
