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.
We're back from Kiev and I wanted to tell you that verything was perfect. Just as we agreed and even better. The landlady was there at the agreed time and the appartment was even better than it looked on the pictures ! Located downtown (10 min from Maidan and the demonstrators :-)) for a very affordable price, my parents were delighted. So was I.
Thank you again for your services and be sure I'll come back to you for my next visit to the Cosacks' country.
