Cathedrale Orthodoxe Russe
Russian Orthodox Cathedral, Nice
The Russian Orthodox Cathedral, Nice is sometimes referred to as St. Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral, Nice. It is a Russian Orthodox Church of the Patriarchate of Moscow, and it is the property of Russia. The Kremlin administers it, and it is a historic monument in the country of France, located in Nice. The cathedral was opened its doors in the early 1900s, because of the magnanimity of Nicholas II, and the cathedral the biggest Russian Orthodox Church in all of Western Europe.
Starting in the mid-1800s, Russian noblemen went to the French Riviera and Nice after the fashion of English noblemen who did so decades earlier. In the mid-18—s, right after the train got to Nice, Tsar Alexander II went to the spot by train, and he liked the nice climate. So, there was a connection between the French Riviera and the Russians that is still in place to this day.
The cathedral was consecrated in 1912 to a woman that the Tsar was close with. The cathedral was supposed to meet the needs of the big Russian population that had settled in the area by the latter part of the 1800s, as well as devout travelers from the Imperial Court. The Tsar paid for the construction work.
Five years later, there was persecution of religious people in Russia, and it led to some dioceses out of the country to create jurisdictions that were not associated with Moscow. The exarchate in Paris would assume control of the cathedral in Nice.
In 2010, a French Court handed down the ruling that the cathedral’s title should still be held by Russia.
This is a beautiful and gorgeous cathedral. However, there are some entry requirements, and it has a very traditional dress code. You need to wear long sleeves or have covered shoulders if you’re a woman, and men are not allowed to wear shorts. There are no exceptions to this rule. You need to be wearing long trousers, and shorts or skirts are not allowed. Make sure you wear shoes and not sandals or flip-flops. The security team is very strict about what you wear, and they will not let you inside if you don’t meet the requirements of the dress code.
