We visited two churches on our Russian journey, Nikolaevsk and Ninilchik. Both churches were locked so we had to satisfy ourselves with exterior photos. In the case of Nikolaevsk, the community is modern and there wasn't much to see. This church had paintings done by a famous Polish artist that I had been looking forward to seeing. Oh well. The community is in the process of building a much bigger church (you can see it behind the old church.) The onion dome for the new church is HUGE.
The town is down below in a canyon and sits beside Deep River. My apologies for the rain on the camera lens. Notice the salmon fishermen in the river. The silvers were running.
