    After seeing some great photography of this location inside Rosco's Pizza, we inquired of the location and paid a visit. Catching the golden hour of light was gift, as I think we captured some nice ph...  more »

    This is a wonderful historical spot to stop if you have even a few minutes, since it isn't far off the beaten path. We had heard that there was limited space to turn around, but we found it sufficient...  more »

    A glimpse into history and a beautiful view is here at the Transfiguration of Our Lord Russian Orthodox Church. Another stop that if you're driving too fast you'll miss it. Overlooking Deep Creek this church sits up high. You'll spot different birds here including Bald Eagles. The Church was under maintenance, but hopefully will be ready for visitors by now.

    Ninilchik AK Russian Orthodox Church This beautiful & well preserved landmark has been a part of my life since I was a child. The Village of Ninilchik is home to the children of Russian, Native Alaskan, & eastern European people. Many of my family's friends, in laws, cousins, aunts etc have been & are still being buried there. Originally you had to walk up the hill from village to get to the church. Boats & float planes were the only way to reach Ninilchik prior to the Sterling Highway being created. Many times I've "drudged" up that hill for weddings & holy days. The original school house was next to the church in the early 1900s. My grandmother was the 2nd teacher there. I have pictures of the building where she is posed with a rifle. A much needed tool! Please remember that this is a church that is still in use & beloved by people. Respect them & their ancestors.

    This church is much more than a building, it's a home for a family of true believers devoted to Jesus Christ. This small church is 110 years old overlooking the village of Ninilchik, Alaska.
