  • A bit out of the way but a short walk gets you to see a rare Russion cathedral in the back streest of Nice. Worth a few minutes detour to see it

  • Beautiful cathedral. Very impressive from the outside in the centre of a busy industrial part of Nice. Beautiful inside too. Free to get in.

  • This church is beautiful place to visit. It has the Russian style from outside, it also has beautiful color and lots of great details. It is a bit far from the city center. If you have a spare time, you should come to visit this church. We recommend.
  • This place is magnificent. My girlfriend and I took the guided tour offered daily at 3pm (free with Riviera Pass otherwise €10, offered in English and French). The Sisters there were very nice and knowledgeable. The opulence of the interior is breathtaking, as is the exterior visage. It is a truly remarkable building and a must-see. Very Impressed, Clayton Cohn
