  • Temple funded by the Russian government early in the 20th century. As characteristic of orthodox churches, walls are nicely decorated with religious patterns and frescoes. The altar and other spaces.....  more »
  • If you like history and architecture you'll enjoy this spot. A 30 minute walk from our hotel, it was worth the time to get there. Enjoy!  more »

  • Very beautiful. Women wearing shorts grab a sheet to drape around your legs to meet dress code policy. No speaking or photographs inside the church either. We were able to snap one interior photo from behind a pillar. Highly recommend the trip out to see it. Free entry.
  • We walked from the coast. Great way to walk through various parts of Nice. The neighbourhood where it’s located isn’t the most appealing to the eyes however it was worth it. The exterior is very photogenic. Woman cannot be uncovered however they do supply scarfs to cover up properly.
