As you can see from the pic the church is in renovation and we couldnt see inside. And because of that it was closed. Anyway in the inside nothing unusual, I'm 100% positive.

Quite an interesting visit - 1 euro each to enter and obtain a cover up as legs and shoulders must be covered. In city centre.

Church looks great outside- i loved roof especially; inside looks like classical orthodox church- icons and saints murals on the walls. Int he basement were graves of the king Nikola I and queen Milena of Montenegro.

As I've detailed in my title, we visited the Church on 3 seperate occasions and had the misfortune to be greeted at the door by a Russian man who was very rude and threatening and would not let us enter. HAS ANYONE ever seen the inside ?

Nice location and small but clearly Russian Orthodox style church. Renovation is a huge undertaking. Wondering if financed by Russian Orthodox Church from Russia. If so, this is applaudible as its well invested. Will check next year on progress

I give it a 4 star because of the surprising aspect, I did not expect to see a Russian church here and I was glad to learn about this part of history. Otherwise, there is not that much to see and it would be more like a 3 star.

Sadly the church was covered in scaffolding and closed for refurbishments when we visited. Hopefully all work will be completed by the summer season. Looked very interesting.

We were really disappointed to see that it was closed due to construction works aiming at renovating its facade. It does look really impressive on the outside, too bad we couldn't visit it..
