A striking little church that will sneak up on you and then beg for some photos. I couldn't go inside, but the outer architecture was unique and pretty. Recommended for a quick photo or, if it's open, going in for a tour of the inside!

Beautiful Muscovite style architecture church. But unfortunatelly is under restoration and we couldn't see the inside.

We absolutely loved St. Nicholas Church. Nice ride in the country side to get there. Walked around all the ancient buildings and took lots of pictures, especially of the painting on the outside. Had a delightful lunch at a little restaurant on the grounds. Really felt that you were in the old Bulgaria.

It was a new experience for me as I never saw Russian churches before! No one speaks English unfortunately, but its worth a visit!

Though the church is small in size, its exterior architecture makes it stand out. Very close to the Nevski cathedral, it is certainly worth a visit. Entrance is free. Not easy to take good pictures because of constraint of space. Best pictures can be taken from the rear side.
