Cathédrale Orthodoxe Saint-Nicolas de Nice

It's very surreal to come round the corner, and see the Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Nice for the first time. It was finished in 1912, to cater for the religious needs of the Russian nobility who flocked to Nice.

It's very small, a perfect, little cake of a place, which beautiful icons inside...

...and what appears to be a samovar...

...of holy water.
