We had the incredible luck to have a guided tour and the guide was Father Roman, who knows everything about this church, had the keys to every door, opened for us a cave that is normally locked and gave us permission to see the holy relics and even to take photos everywhere (The nuns were not so happy and told us that it is forbidden, but as he gave us permission - we were allowed to continue photographing...). The gardens are exquisite and very well kept.

Lucky we were let into the grounds, as there is limited visiting hours. Be prepared to wear
head covering. Beautiful grounds. Lovely church.

Built in the 19th century by the Russians with typical Orthodox onion shaped domes to honor the patron Saint of the Czar's family. From afar it dominates the area. Interior is very pretty with icons.

The domes of the church are beautiful. The interior is simple and elegant. Need to take some stairs to get to this quiet church.

I wanted to visit this church - but the visiting hours are so restrictive that it is almost impossible! So I have been to the gate once, and in the neighborhood a few times!!
