Salvatorkirche (Salvator Orthodox Church Munich)
The church has survived largely unscathed after the bombings of Munich during the Second World War. The glass windows went lost due to air strikes, although they were outsourced to be protected. After the war, surviving remnants were incorporated into the choir windows of the Frauenkirche. In 1970, the iconostasis was restored and thus the chancel was reduced. Vestry and tower were re-covered in 1982 and the exterior was repaired in 1992/93. In the nineties, a box with a large amount of fragments of the late Gothic stained glass window was discovered on the church choir and reassembled by the workshops of the Mayer'schen Hofkunstanstalt. Four glass windows were restored to the Salvatorkirche in 2000. In 2008 the tower was renovated. In 2009, the church receives a new gate.
