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.
I wanted to write you personally and thank-you for all you did for me regarding my trip to Odessa. The airport pickup was very accomodating and your people were right there to meet me as I arrived in Odessa. When you are far away from home as I was you sometimes are scared to travel but Unipress made everything quite easy for me and made me feel like I was home !!
I hope to travel again to your country and if I do I will be sure to get in contact with you again for my travel arrangements.
