The St. Aleksander Nevsky Church in Copenhagen is very close to King Fredrick’s Marble Church and the Amalienborg Palace. This magnificent colourful Russian church was built in 1883 and is still the only Russian Orthodox Church in Copenhagen. It is very good to compare it...More

We visited Copenhagen about a week after a visit to St. Petersburg, Russia where we saw more than our fair share of Russian Churches. Surprised to see the gold onions in Copenhagen, but we recognized immediately.

We passed this Russian church on the way to the Marble Church & the Amalienborg Palace. So interesting to see this very ornate church in the middle of the block of plainer buildings - I'm not an architect so I'm not sure the style of...More

We were only able to view from outside as it was closed when we went, but it's a stunning piece of architecture. The Eastern Orthodox style stands out amongst the churches of Copenhagen. It's en route from the Design Museum to the Marble Church.

This church is beautiful, with its gold domes shimmering in the sun, and is so different from all the other churches in Copenhagen, as it is Russian Orthodox. And yet it does not appear on tourist maps, and we only came across it by chance....More

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

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
