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.

We would like to thank you very much for your perfect arrangements for our family visit to Ukraine in early July.

The train bookings were fine and especially the collection by micro-autobus from my parents-in-law's village Novi Booh and the transfer to Odessa went very very well.

Please be so kind to pass our thanks to your driver for being on-time and driving in a safe manner.We really enjoyed the personal tour through your town Odessa and were impressed by the tourguide. She was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Best regards

Oksana & Lars, Germany
