Memorial to those killed in the waters, the heart and soul which is the Church of St. Nicholas of Myra is located in the village Malorechenskoye. This snowy slender building rising above the ground at 65 m, can be seen from afar – candle church is easily visible even from Alushta waterfront. The temple, like a magnet, immediately attracts attention, and the nearer to him, the stronger the attraction effect. On reaching the temple itself, stops and mute admiration admire its unusual and elegant architecture, great, expertly executed with mosaic panels, gilded arches, domes, cornices, never before-seen decorative ornaments – everything is done with great taste, all in proportion and to place all the masterpiece … Now without the temple and the entire memorial is impossible to south-eastern Crimea – a card of the region, which, together with the Swallow's Nest, Bear Mountain, Golden Gate, symbol of the entire resort peninsula.

The search failed patron – the idea of a Russian businessman interested, philanthropist, Doctor of Economics Alexander Lebedev and his colleagues.
