The Church of St. Nicholas the Miracle-Maker

The Church of St. Nicholas the Miracle-Maker or also known as the Russian Church, is an Orthodox Church dedicated to St. Nicholas. It is among the iconic buildings in the city located in the center, near the Military Club, the National Art Gallery and the “Alexander Nevsky” Cathedral. The construction of the church started in 19th century and was sanctified officially in 1914 on the First World War eve. The church was built specifically for the needs of Russian immigrants in the capital. The five small domes of the church are gilded, the central dome is 19 meters high and the bells were donated by King Nicholas II himself. The tomb of Archbishop Seraphim Sobolev who is considered by many Orthodox Christians for miracle worker, is in the crypt of the church. That is why many people visit his grave asking for miraculous help.
