The church located in city center, which is easy to find. It is extremely beautiful, both inside and outside.

Such church architecture is not so special in European countries, but it is quite different from the one in Vietnam. It is so beautiful, inside and outside. Love it

The church itself has an historical value to the town of Nha Trang, it is rather beautiful inside but nothing impressive if you have seen others Roman Catholic churches in the past. I chose to rate it "average" because of what I mentionned above but I would still recommend it since it is easily accessible and it changes from the... More

I would recommend seeing the church on a Sunday during mass. Only down side was rude beggars, if you didn't give them money.

This is a wonderful Roman Catholic church located within the centre of Nha Trang and set back about half a mile from the coast. It is easily accessed from the many hotels on the front by foot, although the roads around are fairly scary. However, the lower level of the church grounds are fairly quiet and there is an attractive... More

We happened to go there for the afternoon service on a Saturday. There were over two hundred people there, with plastic chairs in use outside the chapel for those who didn't get a seat inside. Although I'm not religious myself, it's pleasing to see a church actually being used by the community!

I'm very glad I went to see this building. It's a Roman Catholic Church built in a slightly Vietnamese style. It's free entry and it doesn't cost much to get a taxi there. I combined this with a trip to see the Buddha statue and temple nearby. There weren't many people there and I wasn't hassled by beggars etc.

This cathedral in the center of Nha Trang is yet another testimony to the spread of Christianity over the world. It is constructed by the French and is perfectly functioning, even newly weds come to take picture in front of the building. It was built in 1928 and has several different names, but official local name is Kito Cathedral.

Compared to the rest of the architecture in Nha Trang, the Nha Tho Nui Catholic cathedral is definitely unique. Beautiful stone statues line the perimeter of the church, a unique and peaceful retreat from the bustle of Nha Trang.
