Nice had a large, mostly Russian, orthodox community after the communist revolution in Russia. As they obviously had a lot of money they build a big and spectacular (certainly on the outside) cathedral. The inside is less interesting and they are difficult regarding photography, but if you are discreet and don't use flash, you can take some photo's. This is a great landmark that is visible from a lot of places in Nice. Check the opening times, as they are rather peculiar....

This is a beautiful Russian Orthodox Church in Nice located fairly close to the train station. It is a tribute to Nicholas Alexandrovich, a Russian tsar who died in Nice. While the interior is quite beautiful, I think my favorite part was the outside architecture and the vibrant colors and shapes used. When I visited, you weren't allowed to go to the top due to renovations, but that may have changed.

True to its name, this church resembles Red Square's St. Basil's more than anything else. Besides being a great place to escape the heat of a summer's day, the interior is breathtaking and unlike any other place of worship in Nice.

Limbiate, Italy

This Christian Orthodox cathedral built in the early 20th century has an impressive architecture, filled with intricate details. It's also the largest Orthodox cathedral in Western Europe.
There is an entrance fee to enter this Church, but it is definitely worth it to see the interior! Be careful not to use flash if you want to take pictures: the staff is not too fond of cameras.

Incontrandola per la città penserete di stare in quel di Mosca (effettivamente il suo progetto si rifà a quello della cattedrale di San Basilio sulla Piazza Rossa)... la Cattedrale Ortodossa di San Nicola dona a Nizza un tocco sovietico svettando con i suoi colori accesi nei pressi della stazione. Fu costruita dallo zar Nicola II nel 1912 per andare in contro alle esigenze religiose dei nobili russi che a partire dai primi anni del '900 si erano stabiliti in Provenza e Costa Azzurra per via del buon clima. Un colpo bel colpo d'occhio!

Une des plus grandes eglises orthodoxes en dehors de Russie, se trouve à NIce en raison de l'importance de la communauté russe sur la Cote d'Azur .
. Cette architecture pleine de couleurs, d'ors de coupoles est tellement rare en France qu'il faut absolument la visiter, si vous etes de passage à Nice. En plus depuis peu, l'entrée est gratuite à la visite.
