Nice may not be quite where you'd expect to find such an ornate, grandiose Russian Orthodox church. This Cathedral is far too beautiful for you not to visit it! It holds the status of being the largest Orthodox Church in Western Europe. Many of the Russian upper class came to Nice in the nineteenth century, so much so that as soon as a railway line was established, Tsar Alexander II came himself. The vast number of Russians in Nice since this time led to the building of this Cathedral. Visitors are welcome, though access will be restricted during service times, which is typically between 12pm to 2pm. Admission is free, though a guided tour can be booked online and costs €10. You can get there by using the 23 or 38 bus from Vieux-Nice or the L2 tram from the Promenade des Anglais. Be mindful of dressing requirements on your visit, as you will not be allowed in if you do not adhere to them. Your shoulders and knees should be covered, and men should avoid hats. It is also forbidden to take photographs inside. Picture by unknown user on pixabay.com
