St. Nicholas' Orthodox Church is the most important and oldest church of its kind outside Russia.
Built in 1912 by czar nicolai ii, this church is magnificent, covered with red brick, light gray marble and colorful ceramic tiles, six onion domes are a major feature of its architecture.
We walked from the city center but the views along the road were not so great, a bit like the third-tier city, just went there to see the church.
Although in Russia, the onion has seen all manner of appearance, still did not restrain the impulse to look at the onion growing in France again. There were so many places to go around that sitting and dazed was not a waste of time, I saw the onion five kilometers back and forth before leaving Nice. It is a beautifully decorated Orthodox church, not particularly spectacular, more like the "Golden Ring Town" in the delicate style.
It is hard to think of a church like this one in a French seaside city far from Russia, and the Cathedral of St. Nicholas is also a large Orthodox church with centuries of history, a high-status church that is a complex, inclusive part of Nice's religious history.
Nice st. Nicholas orthodox cathedral is the most important and the oldest of its kind outside Russia''s cathedral. Its design inspiration comes from Moscow''s church style, interior decoration is extremely rich, decorated with a lot of ICONS, mural, sculpture, fine wood paneling and by embossing and chase the icon panel made of metal.
Very cool looking Russian style church, with crazy colorful towers and spires and intricate pre revolution opulence.
True to its name, this church resembles Red Square's St. Basil's more than anything else. Besides being a great place to escape the heat of a summer's day, the interior is breathtaking and unlike any other place of worship in Nice.
