It was around 20 minutes walk from Nice train station. Absolutely stunning and I am happy to see it without going to Russia itself. Amazing architecture. Like others, we just enjoyed the view from outside and took photos. Definitely recommend.

Very beautiful Russian Orthodox Cathedral! Couldn't go inside because of construction. But it was so amazing from outside! Definitely worth visiting! Очень красивый собор! Главная Икона Собора вынесена отдельно и вы можете помолиться и прикоснуться к ней! очень рекомендую посетить этот Собор!

For outside it absolutely amazing. Was not possible to visit inside because of renovation works but the outside was outstanding, completely different comparing with other buildings in Nice. It is easy to get there, it is close to the train station. Don't miss it!

Beautiful Russian cathedrale! It is very close to the trainstation, so easy to visit. We couldnt look inside cause of renovation. But it was totally worth visiting for only the outside. You should really check this out when you're in Nice, doesnt take that much time!

In the heart of Nice, suddenly you feel that you are in Moscow! :) Its a really beautiful cathedral, although currently undergoing renovation and closed to visitors from the inside :(

Stunning outside, but being renovated until November 2015 inside so closed. Worth driving there to see the outside if you have a car though.

There's a charge for visiting and it's a long walk from the old town. In February was closed for repair.

Its OK, but it is quite a long walk out of the city for something that ultimately ends up disappointing you slightly. Lots of hype locally and yes some very famous Russians used to go to church here and yes its pretty, but I cant say too much more about it.

The Cathedral is absolutely stunning from the outside and it really does not feel like it is in France, it makes you feel like you're standing somewhere in Russia. The church is very well preserved around the perimeter, and is surrounded by trees and plants. The inside was very very dark, I'm not sure if the lights were not working... More
