  • Beautiful building but nothing is planned for visitors. We seem to disturb the priest who turns off the lights during the visit. Terrible home!

  • The St Nicholas cathedral is a beautiful Russian Orthodox church located not very far from the central train station of Nice. It is worth a visit specially with kids, the place is beautiful and has nice gardens with little bunnies playing and jumping around. You may also enter the church if you want to take a closer look. The entrance is free and the church is nicely decorated.
  • An extraordinary and magnificent structure built to the most beautiful of artisan craftsmanship. A must see for all visitors to beautiful Nice.
