We read that this Cathedral is one of the most beautiful Russian Cathedrals outside Russia.
Having seen some other orthodox cathedrals in Russia, I must say that this one is definitely beautiful.
It is located in a nice green area of the city, and you cannot see the building untill you're actually in front of it. Its "hidden location" makes it even more isolated from the rest of the city and the Western life style. An oasis!
The façade is in excellent conditions, while the back of the cathedral is a little bit damaged, but still wonderful.
We were lucky to be there while a service was being celebrated: the service is held in Russian, and it is attended by a large Russian community.
The interior is even more impressive than the exterior.

Directions: Off the Boulevard du Tzarewitch, near the train station (Gare Nice-Ville)
