St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church Juneau, Alaska

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.

If you like history, this little church is worth the few blocks away from the main roads. It isn't a place to buy things, but a small sanctuary with a unique past. The church was under some repairs, and not photogenic from the outside, but lovely inside. The caretaker was kind enough to show us around and tell us about... More

Although it is tiny, it is interesting to see. The attendant was knowledgeable and taught us a lot. Visiting it does not take much time but is a little gem.

Juneau is built on a hill and this little church is near the top. It is well worth the walk up and the outside building and little garden can be photographed and admired. There was a bell on the ground waiting to be installed as they were renovating the roof and spire. The inside was open when we were here... More
