The area
Address
Neighborhood: Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.

A gorgeous sight distinctive with a trio of onion domes and grand design of red and grey brick and stone. Above the carillon is an icon of Alexander Nevsky, the Patron Saint of the church.

As the only Russian church in the city it was promoted in the latter half of the 19th century by the Danish born wife of Tsar Alexander III.

In an 1883 ceremony it was consecrated by a Provost from St Petersburg in the presence of notables from Danish, Russian and Greek Royalty.

There is one in Bulgaria, Estonia and I'm sure other countries with the same name. The Aleksander Nevsky Church is a 19th-century Russia-style church in Copenhagen. It is located near the Amalienborg Palace, and is one of the many gorgeous churches in the city. It is worth a visit.

I was so mesmerized by those golden onion domes such that when I took a picture of them, I didn't notice that the couple beside me who also seemed to be taking pictures of the domes were actually stealing my wallet! I noticed them over at the nearby Marble Church and they must have followed me. It was only when I got to the Design Museum that I noticed that my bag was open and my wallet gone. So, careful that you don't get mesmerized by those shining gold onion domes!

The only Russian Orthodox church in the city was built in 1883 and dedicated to the Russian patron saint Alexander Nevsky, which statue stands in a niche above the church bells. It is located very close to the Marble Church and well worth the visit.

If you enjoy churches this one should be on your list in Copenhagen. It's beautiful and serene. And, you can visit rather quickly.

A very unique place with beautiful icons and a very special atmosphere. The priests were very kind to talk with the guests.

It was unexpected to find the Russian Orthodox church in Copenhagen downtown. I have to say it is one of the most beautiful orthodox churches in Europe. It's interesting to visit even if you are not orthodox because it's also an object if culture and art.

Very cool church. Limited opening hours for tourists, but worth a visit. It's the only Russian Orthodox church in Copenhagen.

We just walked by it and saw it was a beautiful church. We couldn't get in but the outside was very pretty. It's close to the Marble Church.

A Russian church is not exactly what you would expect to find in Copenhagen. I discovered it by chance when I was going to visit Frederiks Kirke. It has a very beautiful facade and some golden domes with a specific shape of onion.
