The cathedral is beautifully ornate and has some lovely artwork displayed. Far from the cold religious houses one might imagine, St Nicholas is inviting and has a happy atmosphere

Frankly - as captivating as the Sisteine chapel ceiling and chapel ceilings in the beautiful orthodox churches of Russia. Stay for a service and enjoy the spirit! God Bless you!

This was one beautiful cathedral that we visited while in Europe. It was once a Gothic church in the early 18th century but was replaced with a Baroque building. It was consecrated in 1707.

It's a beautiful church, right from the exterior with paintings on the walls and detailing on the doors. Walk in to be stunned with the interior. In baroque style it is covered with frescoes and statues, gilded pulpit and stunning roof. Photos are not adequate...More
