Very bright church. It is worth to visit. You can put a candle in memory of your beloved ones or just for a good reason ✨️. The Church was done with bright and light atmosphere. It's small, but cozy
The Queen's Church. An unexpected architectural style catches you, walking or driving along the Italian paradise coast of San Remo, the so called Russian Orthodox Church. Built in the old style of 17th century Moscow churches, with five onion domes (topped with crosses in Russian style) and the characteristics of kokočniki decorations, it is so different than any other building or monument in the city! The idea belongs to the Russian queen (Tsarina) Maria Alexandrovna, who wanted to place a church at the beginning of the avenue dedicated to her. In 19th century a number of Russian aristocrats lived or spent significant time in San Remo. Even though the queen died before she saw her dream come true, other residents who lived in San Remo, Russian aristocrats, and the Tsar Nicholas II, supported the project and made it happen. Two funy things : First, the Russian architect never visited San Remo and works were directed by a local Italian architect. Seccond, he was the designer of Lenin's mausoleum on the Red Square in Moscow, and was remembered more for the churches demolished during the Soviet period, rather than by the ones realized in prior times.
