La Cathedrale Orthodoxe Russe Saint-Nicolas, Nice

The Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Nice is a striking edifice that stands as a symbol of Russian architectural prowess in France.

The Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Nice is a striking edifice that stands as a symbol of Russian architectural prowess in France. It was built in 1912 by Tsar Nicholas II as a place of worship for Russian aristocrats and industrialists who holidayed on the Côte d'Azur before the 1917 Russian Revolution. Post-Revolution, it was the church of the exiled Russians who lived in Nice.

The ornate orange and white facade is topped with 5 green onion-shaped domes and tent roofs with gilt crosses and details. The interiors contain a treasure trove of frescoes, icons, decorative woodwork and items of historical value which were brought here during the Russian Revolution.
