One of the most beautiful buildings in Nice is the Russian Church with its soaring tiled onion domes in malachite and jade.....Isn't it gorgeous?
The exterior architectural details are quite stunning and exquisite.....
But what about the interior?? Good question !! An inscrutably enigmatic security guard who was obviously auditioning for the next Beckett or Pinter play in town had this to say (in heavily Russian accented English...)
"So can I look inside?"
"No is closed"
"How long for?"
"Minimum one year"
"Why is that?"
"is long story"
"is there a short version?"
"best you forget everything you know"
"but I don't know anything about it"
"is good..best you forget everything you told"
"but nobody has told me anything..."
"So you're not going to tell me?"
"is long story................"
So for the time being, be content with these exterior shots of a lovely building....If anyone in the blogosphere can enlighten me about this intriguing story of closure, please do so!! The Russian Church is in North Nice ten minutes walk from the central railway station Nice-Ville Gare. Enjoy!!
