  • It is beautiful. Take your time and stay more in the garden. It is not that far from the main boulivard. 
  • The Orthodox Cathedral of St. Nicoles of Russia of Nice is located on the boulevard Tsarewitch, she is majestic from the outside, Grand, it looks like red square, the domes of the towers are covered with gold, a park surrounds the building, the problem, is that there is no parking and it is difficult to park in the neighborhood, but as soon as one comes inside disappointment! the main room is small, decorated with icons and sculptures. It is classified historical monument, since it is attached to the Russian Orthodox diocese of Chersonese of the Patriarchate of Moscow and all Russia.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A rather surprising sight in Nice! Beautiful building.
