The cathedral was built by a Russian architect in 1912. Its six cupola with golden bulbs add a touch of the exotic to the Nice skyline and symbolise the importance of the Russian colony on the Côte d'Azur. The interior, in the shape of a Greek cross, with its décor of frescos, woodwork and icons show great goldsmith's work. There is a sumptuous iconostas around the choir.
