  • This building feels out of place for Nice but it's unique architecture and presence definitely makes it a site worth visiting. The Orthodox Church is absolutely stunning and is surrounded by a nice lawned area to sit and relax or access the public WC.
  • Parking was terrible. Once you do find a spot it was very pretty to walk around and look inside. The architecture was quite amazing. It was not busy at all.
  • Wonderful. It makes you feel you're in moskva :). Its interior is beautiful. Funny to see how people come for speed praying. 1 minute et hop, they're out. A must see! Photography inside is allowed. I made several pics inside and have seen no forbidding sign
  • A rather surprising sight in Nice! Beautiful building.
  • A hidden gem. This is a stunning building both inside and out. Only down side is no photographs inside. Handy public toilet in the grounds.
