After ups and downs, spoliation and periods of neglect, the Church was reopened 50 years ago and today welcomes Orthodox Rite faithful. To see inside stucco and frescoes.

  • beautiful snow-white Church of San Vito in Pasquirolo Church is located near the Duomo and at present you can visit after reconstruction. Go here quite nicely, despite the fact that it is located in the Centre of Milan, people are not very much.

  • Small but cute church of San Vito is at the moment hosting the Russian Orthodox Church. It is a special place of the Russian, but in general, orthodox community. They are every day services while the biggest ones are each Sunday and on special days (Christmass, Easter, etc.). It is very nice to attend some of the Sunday's "liturgija" (service) as people are friendly and warm and accept you to be a part of it. Would recommend visiting it in order to experience a different side of Milan.
  • Small orthodox church
  • really great!
