Cute little church, easy walking distance from port (just behind/above the State Capitol). Closed when we were there, but pretty pictures from outside.

This place gets great write ups and is very photogenic but is in need of restoration. Sadly if was locked up and we had to peer in the windows

This was a small church, but such a neat experience. A Russian orthodox church in the heart of the city. It was worth taking the ten minute walk to get there from the cruise ship.

This quaint little church, St. Nicholas, is an old wooden structure that is set apart from Juneau's main tourist zone. It is a few blocks off the beaten tourist path (and up a few steep city streets). So, getting there takes a little efforts. Nevertheless, for those who appreciate religious art and architecture, this quaint little church is worth the... More

Presently under renovations so not open but worth a quick visit to see the building and have a peek in the windows. Wonderful to see it is being maintained. Simply walk up the hill through the downtown Juneau area and you will arrive.

Lots of scaffolding around the dome and not able to go inside....It was a nice hike up the hill to find this out....but the Catholic chapel next door was nice.

We would have loved to go inside; but, it was being renovated and all we could do was look at the building from the street.

It's uphill all the way, which is not so easy when you're a senior, but the climb is well worth it! I was greeted by a woman manning the gift shop, who led me around to the church's entrance. The church is very beautiful and is an historical gem, dating from 1894. Being a Monday afternoon, I was pleasantly surprised... More

After the Mendenhall canoe trip I set out to explore Juneau. I have been there before on business so it was nice to be "tourist". This is a really unique building and you just want to make it smaller so you can take it home. Walk around the city as it is fun and a better way to really see... More
