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

We could see the onion dome from the capitol. so we thought we would walk over. It's amazing how small this church is, but there isn't much to see or read, but it is worth a few minutes of your time.

We wanted to go and see this interesting church and piece of Russian heritage but they were closed so we had to pass on this unique church.

This old church is a great way to connect to our Creator. A visit to the chapel connects early Alaska and today's worshippers together in a peaceful atmosphere.

When you arrive by ship, get away from the the touristy stuff and head into town. Juneau isn't much to look at -- "this place is the capital of a state?" I thought. This little octagonal Russian church is certainly nothing you'll see in the rest of the states. And it has some great art from that period.

We boarded directly from our ship, Holland America Volendam, right in the middle of the chandel. The St. Nicholas took us up really close to the glaciers and under a waterfall. Crew was extremely knowledgable and friendly. I'm going to do it again.

I love history and architecture and I accidentally stumbled upon this. I was glad to find it. Its a piece of Russia in the US. They still have church there.

We were on a small tour of Orthodox Alaska and its relationship to native peoples, so had the opportunity to attend worship here, hear the history of the church and its congregation. The building is in pretty good shape with ongoing projects to rehabilitate portions. Many icons fill the interior, and the Russian style dome is worth walking up the... More

Go on a walking tour! As soon as you get off the cruise ship go to the Information booth. Ask them to map our key places to see in Juneau - they are very helpful and knowledgeable. You will discover interesting places to visit - like St. Nicholas. You can have a tour as long or as short as you... More

This is a beautiful little church in Alaska. Nothing to dislike unless churches and museums aren't your thing.
