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.

  • A fine example of a Russian Orthodox church, beautiful building to behold from the outside and the interior was equally beautiful. 
  • Sensational the interior of the Church, well worth knowing. It is easy to reach on foot from the central square, and you don't pay to enter. We arrived in time to a cult where all women cover their heads in scarves, and a beautiful music completed the charm of the place.
