Description Nikolai Nikolayevich Ryzhkov (1868–1920) was a Russian Orthodox priest. The contribution will be dedicated to his work in the Czech environment at the beginning of the 20th century. Since the issue of the Patent of Toleration in 1781, the Orthodox Church was perceived as “tolerated” in Austria-Hungary and starting from 1874, it has become a recognized Church. During the 19th century and the period of the National Revival, efforts were made to form the Czech Orthodox community. At the end of the 19th century, several Czechs converted to Orthodoxy, but these people were not organized yet. An organized life begins only with Nikolai Ryzhkov. The aim of the contribution is, based on the analysis of Ryzhkov's activities, to prove his influence on religious and social life of the then Orthodox Czechs. A part of the contribution will also be dedicated to the Church of St. Nicholas in Prague and the Saint Peter and Paul Cathedral in Karlovy Vary during the Ryzhkov era. The activities of this personality will be assessed in the context of the then Czech-Russian relations.
