Description Nikolay Ryzhkov was a Russian Orthodox priest who from the beginning of the 20th century began to work in the Czech environment, where he was active not only among the Orthodox. A sad but significant part of Ryzhkov's life was his imprisonment in 1914-1917 and the subsequent trial. This paper focuses on three works in which Ryzhkov's life, or part of it, is depicted. One of these authors is Vladimir Grigorievich Zhukovsky and his poem. Here we will look at how the personality of N. Ryzhkov and his work in Prague and Karlovy Vary is portrayed against the background of political tensions in the period before the start of the First World War. The second author is Vincenc Cervinka, who published a work of memoirs in 1928, in which he focused on his own trial and his stay in a Viennese prison. The third author is the evangelical pastor Jan Reznicek, who wrote a book called Ve věži smrti during his time in Choceň, in which he describes his own experiences in an Austrian prison.
