This is a very interesting church and more like an art gallery. You have to pay to get in, but not much. It is well cared for and the docent was helpful.

Here you get to see one of the main attractions of the city and learn more about its link to nobility over the past centuries. The church has had a rescent renovation and looks really nice. They ask a small amount to enter, with this they will finance future renovations.

A small but interesting attraction but only 2 euros entrance and an insight into this type of establishment,which you do not come across everyday whilst on holiday!

You would not expect to find a Russian chuch on the italian Riviera. When visiting Sanremo, do not miss this little church. They only ask for 1 euro entrance fee. Dogs are not allowed inside.

We went there as our hotel was nearby, but it's a very small church with not much to see. It is awaiting some renovation…

It is an impressive building. You must sea it if you visit Sanremo. The building is nearby The Casino. There is beautiful view there. There are also shops and restaurants near there. It must be seen if you go to san remo.

Completed in 1913, this impressive Russian Orthodox church is dedicated to the Saviour and Saint Catherine. It was modelled after Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow.Sanremo was promoted to the Russians by tsarina Maria Alexandrovna who had spent a winter in this sleepy resort in 1874.Very beautiful outside and inside. Really recommend to visit .

The Russian Orthodox Church is located near the Hotel we stayed at, Hotel Paradiso, the architecture of this Orthodox Churches with their Onion tops is unusual, you have to pay 1.00 Euro to get inside the church, it is entirely different than a Christian Church ... so go and educate yourself and take a look, very interesting

It's pretty on the outside, and it's nice inside, but nothing you would regret missing if you don't go in. Besides, it's being restored and it's really small inside.
