Very Good little History Lesson

This is a beautiful little chapel easily walked to. It provides insights to the history of Kodiak and Alaska. Inside are beautiful icons and outside is an interesting bell display.

We were in Kodiak in June and were greatly upset to see such a wonderful icon of history, St Herman's Chapel having been vandalised. Lots of windows had been smashed the night before and then had to be boarded up. You wonder why people can't respect a wonderful piece of history.

One of the oldest landmarks in Kodiak, tours are possible, but it's hard to get a hold of someone. Working bell tower & they even get musical on Orthodox Holidays. A must check out if your in Kodiak.

Worth the trip up the hill to see the mixture of Alaskan and Russian religious heritage. Didn't know what to expect but it had a number of very interesting things to see.

Hard to get a hold of anyone via e-mail or church phone number, but they do list personal numbers online. Finally got a hold of someone and set up a tour of the chapel and seminary. Absolutely wonderful - totally personal, great touch of Alaskan culture, Russian culture, Orthodox culture. Wonderful to get a chance to venerate St. Herman's relics... More

the priests are very friendly when they saw me taking fotos outside and invited me to go inside. So beautiful, cute and you think you are in a church in Russia.
