If you are nearby you should take a quick look at this church. It impresses with the golden onion domes.

This is a very small church, more of a chapel really. The architecture is exquisite and the inside is decorated with Russian icons and wonderful art work. Definitely worth a visit.

There is a small fee to enter the church, which goes towards the people that oversee the church during off hours. While it is a shame that churches can't just leave their doors open to the communities they serve, theft has made that impossible.

The number of icons present are worth seeing and if you're lucky you'll get to witness a church event (wedding, service, etc). The view from this location of the town is also spectacular.

Overall, you get up see a nice example of a Russian Orthodox Church without leaving the comfort of Europe. Icons, a saint, and some trinkets at the gift shop, all for a small fee, makes this a most see.

It's a very nice walk with wonderful views . The church is beautiful but it was closed. There is a lift that can take up or downto the city.

This beautiful church is situated on the side of Neroburg hill. It has beautiful gold domes in the traditional Russian orthodox style. A Euro 2 donation is requested when going into the church and unfortunately no photo's are allowed inside the church. The walk down the hill is steep in places but the path is asphalt and fairly smooth, so it can be negotiated by folks who are not the most abled. Definitely worth the walk if you appreciate architecture and or religious buildings.
