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

Being Orthodox Christians, my wife and I really wanted to see the church. It was a nice walk up the hill through town (maybe a mile from the dock) to get there, and well worth it. Even though the church wasn't open for viewing when we arrived, the priest came out of his house and after a brief conversation let... More

We found the church had ready access by going around the corner and approaching via the small park. Someone was there with the door open to explain the church's history as desired and to also open the gift shop. It's very ornate and worth the trip up the hill.

We walked the eight blocks from downtown, couldn't find the bus, cloudy and rainy but an interesting walk. The problem was when we got to the church; the closest we got was across the street. There are back hoes and construction workers giving the site a much needed redo. The visitors center downtown did not know about the closure so... More

My mom and I love historic sites, especially nosing around old churches. This site is an uphill walk, but worth seeing if history is your cup of tea. They were replacing the foundation while we were there (preservation is good) but we did get to peek inside. A young gentleman came in to give us some context about what se... More
