With so many tourists being rushed through, this was ultimately a very disappointing experience. No chance to ponder and sit inside to look at the beautiful interior. Most annoyingly, my wife, who wanted to take some time out and pray for so many lost family members over the last five years and for strength to fight the dreadfulness that is cancer that has affected her for the last four years.

She was forcibly told by some guy with an official badge that "she wasn't allowed to pray, as she wasn't orthodox ".

I am not religious but I thought that an orthodox church was also a Christian church. Not much christianity shown here I'm afraid.

It is the only church of any denomination where she hasn't been made most welcome wherever we are in the world... and has therefore made no substantial contribution.

Those in charge need to sort out what their reason for being is.. .. are you a house of God or just a "tourist trap"!!??

A small church tucked away down a small street in the Old Town, with an OTT interior. As with the bigger Orthodox church, photography isn’t allowed inside, which is a shame as all the bling has to be seen to be believed.

This is a magnificent building, however I was slightly disappointed with the interior, I was expecting it to be very grand and it wasn't. From the outside the building is spectacular.
