A tiny, historical Russian Orthodox Church very easy to walk to from downtown Juneau. A nice view of Gasstineau Chanel from the grounds.

This looked like an interesting piece of Juneau's history, we were only able to view from the outside.

the resident caretaker is quick to come and help with a guided tour just about as soon as you get near this orthodox church-part of which came from Russia. The icons are really good and people still gather to pray in St Nicholas and the feast is celebrated every Dec 6

One of Alaska's oldest Russian Orthodox Churches. Interesting gift shop on-site. Church is currently being refurbished.

I lived around the corner from St Nicholas and was looking forward to visiting such a historical shrine to the Russian colonial past. At the present moment the church is under massive repair work so wasn't available to visit. Perhaps one can find out who had the key. Interesting to note is that the Russian Orthodox church has a church... More

Tiny little orthodox church which is undergoing renovations but that's OK it's so old it's to be expected. I didn't bother with the tour and just kind of ventured in by myself to have a look around. Very old historical church within walking distance of town. I have posted some photos for those who are interested in seeing

Such a tiny church with unusual round architecture. There still aren't many residents in Juneau so you can imagine what the population was when St Nicholas church was built. Just a short climb up the hill to see this blue-white church.

In downtown Juneau, a quick stop to see this iconic landmark church set beneath a beautiful mountain. Just a few streets away from the capital. Worth viewing.
