About
The church together with the gates from dolomite and surrounding wall is under protection as architectural memory. The church built in 1790 is three-naved in low-key late classicistic style. Interesting is built at the same time three-part gate. On each side of its main entrance wall surface hang two half-columns with Doric serifs.Interesting to know:Church was built by order of Catherine the II. Since the congregation was established there were 30 priests.

When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A bit poor condition. Better visit would be REO. 12 km from city center. Open every day. Monks and nuns labouring in gardens.

A beautiful gate beckons you in to this church in the center of town. There are the usual icons, but nothing special.

This church is centrally located and one of the few that was opened during our visit. It has some newly minted icons which are lovely and certainly it warrants a short visit when in the old town.

Beautiful Church and gate from 1790. Located on "main street" Lossi, so impossible to miss on your way from Centre to Fortress.

Our visit was a lovely experience. Our group was standing outside looking at the building and the very friendly priest invited us in for a look. The church is lovely. There is also an interesting and beautiful fresco on the outside wall facing the street.

18th century St Nicholas church is one of two in central Kuressaare. We tried to visit it at 10.30 on a Sunday morning but the door was locked. There appeared to be people inside so we're not sure if it is closed once a service starts. If you're particularly keen to visit the church, then we,d suggest checking the Visit Estonia website (which we've subsequently discovered) as it has details of the church's opening hours.

The church has recently been restored . It is not a big church, but it is a beautiful little church. When you enter it is like you are transferred in time.

One of my favorite pasttimes in Estonia is to take pictures of old churches and blog about it. In fact, the picture attached to this church appears to be a picture from my blog that I took during my second visit to St. Nicholas. I blogged about the visit here: http://estonianchurches.blogspot.com/2012/08/orthodox-church-of-st-nikolay-in.html

My first visit to the church was in May of 2012, and much of the front was covered with netting to protect the parts they were restoring. When I went back, the material had been removed to reveal this beautiful church. Make sure to check out some of the paintings of icons on the outside. If you are lucky, you will find the church unlocked...I have not yet been that fortunate.
