The article is devoted to the development of religious buildings of Neogothic style and their stylistic features in the second half of the XVIII century. During the preromantic period the hobby for a Neogothic style in Russia has been connected with idealized idea of customers about the Middle Ages. The gothic style attracted them with exotic shapes.
