Known for its intricate iconostasis, Saint Nicholas' Orthodox Church houses 16th-century paintings and vibrant decor. Built in 1827, this Classicist-style church consists of two bell towers and a large copper dome. The white and orange outer facade emerges from a narrow cobblestone street. Step inside to view artistic objects and lavish decor. Light plays off many surfaces inside the main dome, which is lined with colorful glass and rich ornaments. You can get souvenirs and religious literature inside the church.

  • St Nicholas should not be confused with the nearby Alexander Nevsky Orthodox church. St Nicholas is now a museum with various displays of art etc. We looked around the entrance lobby but didn't bother...  more »
  • Go not to gawk, and to join the spiritual experience of many generations. Leaves a very deep impression.

  • Small, charming Orthodox Church in the old town. Not as pompous as the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, but very homey.
