The church looks great from the outside. I've never went to Russia, so it was the first time I saw that kind of towers in a church. They really look amazing and shine like gold. When you get inside, it's kinda weird - again, I don't know how a russian church should look like inside. It's all painted black and... More

Currently under renovation for its facade, can't see anything. There was mass going on when we tried to enter. Hope to visit it again!

It was interesting to accidentally come to such a sight. This church is having a style that is not known for the region and that's what makes it unique and fun to see.

Traditional Russian Church. One who has seen Russian Churches will recognise the architecture. Unfortunately during our visit they were mending the church , so we couldn't enter ... but overall a very beautiful church !!!

The church is ridiculously hard to find and is not signposted. There appears to be extensive refurbishment going on and there was scaffolding all around the building. The church is much smaller than I expected. Entrance is 2 francs and whilst there is lots of symbolism and we regalia on show, you're really not going to be spending more than... More
