St. Peter & St. Paul Ukrainian Orthodix Church, Carnegie

There are two Ukrainian churches in Carnegie. The Catholic one is an enlarged Quonset hut. This one is a mid-twentieth-century interpretation of traditional Ukrainian architecture. Together with its next-door neighbor, the Russian Orthodox church, it makes this corner of Carnegie look exotically East European.

The effect is even more curious when the distinctively Ukrainian domes are seen through a distinctively American maze of utility cables.
