This is a really pretty church really overshadowed by the Marble Church in the same area. Its shame that we couldn't get inside when we visited but got a few nice photographs of the outside. If it wasn't so close to the Marble Church it...More

Want to see a bit of Russia but can't get a visa to do so? This church is straight out of Russian architecture. Its right past the dome cathedral so make sure you're looking up as you walk or you'll miss it.

Compared t all the other churches around this has the very different orthodox style and architecture and thus stands out as a big contrast. Never the less the golden domes stand out and if you catch them on a sunny day they will really shine...More

The only Russian Orthodox church in the city was built in 1883 and dedicated to the Russian patron saint Alexander Nevsky, which statue stands in a niche above the church bells. It is located very close to the Marble Church and well worth the visit.

This Russian Orthodox church is only a few yards away from the Marble Church. The façade is dominated by three gilded onion domes and lovely diaper brickwork. Unfortunately, it was closed when we visited.

Another display of how an Orthodox Church should be with its history and how it was made, very easy to find while strolling the city with It's tower in a distance could possibly notice by everyone.

On the way to marble church, this original church will make you wonder if you still in Denmark or if you moved to Russia. Very nice and incredibly interesting!

Beautifully adorned with icons, this very active and popular church enchants with its shiny golden domes and an inviting interior. Please be aware of the liturgies, baptisms, or other services that might take place at any time.

The church is in city centre, very close to Frederiks Kirke (the more famous Marble Church), but as it is on upper floors, you may miss it even when passing by. It has a most beautiful golden dome on the top of the building. So...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
