The Russian Orthodox Cathedral


Yes, it really is Nice and not Moscow. This is the Cathedral of St Nicholas located in the Parc Imperial district of Nice and the largest Russian orthodox church outside Russia.
More about the church tomorrow but if you could see only one monument in Nice, make it this one!
