St.Nicholas the Wonderworker Church

Operation: year round
Location: Alushta, Malorechenskoye, Malorichenske
 
Located in the vicinity of Alushta town, in Molorecheskoye village the St.Nicholas Church has become the first church-lighthouse in Ukraine. This unique Orthodox Christian Church has been consecrated in 2007 by Metropolitan of Kiev and all Ukraine Volodymyr.
Rising at the height of 65 meters, the church of the patron saint of sailors and travelers stands on the steep cliff and is prominently visible from the sea. Symbolizing the planet of Earth, the lighthouse in the shape of a globe replaces a traditional Orthodox Christian dome-cupola under the main cross of the temple. Referring to the Byzantine past of the Crimea, the beautiful design of this modern church incorporates the traditional Byzantine ornaments with the marine theme.

When I began planning my trip to Odessa I knew nothing about travel to Europe let alone Eastern Europe. Some of the stories I had heard and read made me a little nervous but when I found Unipress BTD all my worries were handled for me with a personal touch I'm not accustomed to in the US. I found Odessa a wonderful and beautiful city. I have been to Odessa twice now and both times with first rate service and no problems, I could never ask for better service at a very reasonable price. My next trip to Odessa will begin with an E-mail to Tanya and Igor. Thanks for the help in making my trips a success.
