Russian Church of St Nicholas, Sofia

Interesting
Like many visitors, you will no doubt feel a deep emotion on catching sight of the green-and-gold onion-shaped domes of the charming Russian church of St-Nicholas. Built in 1914 in the 17C Russian style, it is believed to have been commissioned by a Russian diplomat who was feeling homesick. The interior is adorned with frescoes in the style of the Novgorod school and with a splendid ceramic iconostasis. Even though it is a pastiche, this charming sanctuary is widely considered as the capital's finest monument.
