  • St. Nicholas ' Church in today's classicist form dates back to the early 19th century (Consection in 1827). However, its history dates back to the Middle Ages, when it was set up for the Orthodox funds of Russian merchants. From the outside is especially not impressive, it is small but it houses a beautiful interior. Its decoration is a beautiful iconostas, dating from the turn of the 17TH and 18th centuries, and funded by the Carean-Regent Zofia, the sister of Peter I, is a work of the Masters of Pskowskich. The impression is enhanced by beautiful icons and paintings covering almost all the walls of the Orthodox Church and a cute starry vaulted ceiling. Here you can feel the sacred, which in my opinion is lacking in the Great Council of Alexander Nevsky.

  • Although there are more spectacular Orthodox churches this one is still worth a look and tends to be fairly quiet. The icons and gilt decorations are worth seeing.  more »
