“Quaint little church.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We enjoyed out visit to St Nicholas and got some good photos as there were hardly any people around at the time. A different little church showing Russian influence in the style.

“Beautiful Icons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It was amazing to see all the wonderful Icons from Russia, I can't wait to see how the Church will look when the Garden is Blooming.

“Beautiful and Unexpected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is a Russian Orthodox Church built in the late 1880s. The icons and the altar come across the Strait from Russia, but the rest is made in America. Beautiful craft.

“Lovely little church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I really enjoyed including a trip to this charming historic church in a short walking excursion around downtown Juneau. The church is a bit dilapidated, but filled with beautiful relics and artwork and is an interesting part of Juneau history. I wish them the best in their renovation efforts. Stop by when in Juneau.

“Stop By If You're In The Area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

A neat little historic stop. Not nearly as impressive as the Russian history in Sitka, but then again Juneau wasn't even founded while Russia ruled Alaska. Worth a stop if you on your way up to the mining museum or to hike the Perseverance Trail. Hopefully the place can get some funding for refurbishment. Sad to see this piece of history crumbling away.
