Russian Orthodox Church

A corner of Russia next to the Hotel de Paris in Sanremo

The Russian Orthodox church, built in the 1910s, is another symbol of Sanremo: it was commissioned by the Russian community, present in Sanremo thanks to the arrival of the Czarina Maria Alexandrovna, who stayed there in 1874 and gave the city the palm trees on Corso Imperatrice, dedicated to her.

Pietro Agosti, the designer who also built the Hotel de Paris, was inspired by the church of SaInt Basil in Moscow. The eccentric style triumphs: the characteristic five bulb-shaped domes and the large spire are all covered with majolica. Inside, until 1989, were the tombs of Nicholas I of Montenegro and his wife Milena, parents of Queen Helena of Savoy. Now the bodies have been transferred to Montenegro.

Distance from the hotel: 1 minute on foot
