Gulnara, Transplanted architecture? This reminds me of the strange grey stone mosque that I saw either in Moscow or Leningrad in 1979 (the year before the 1980 Moscow Olympics).

I visited the USSR on a five city Intourist group holiday for three weeks because the other cities were Samarkand, Tashkent and Bukhara in the Soviet Socialist State of Uzbekistan.

Frank, i suppose you mean Friday mosque of St Petersburg, it was build in 1913 by Emir of Bukhara, who lived then in Petersburg. Style of mosque is something like mixture of Timurid architecture and Russian Art-noveau.
