San Nicoḷ dei Greci ("Saint Nicholas of the Greek") is the church of the Greek-Orthodox community of Trieste. It lies near Piazza Unità d'Italia, along the rive ("seashores"). Its a neoclassic facade with two symmetric bell-towers was built by Matteo Pertsch in 1821, while the rest of the church dates of 1787.
According to a legend I have read in my guide, it seems that women who want to have a child should brush their back against the railings that enclose the church to get their dream become true!
But now, the moment has come to enter this unfortunately unknown church: hold your breath, close your eyes and move to the next tip!
