This is a Russian Orthodox church which is not listed as a tourist location, however you can't miss the wonderful golden domes that sit on the roof when in Amalienborg Palace area. Unfortunately the church doesn't open that often for services but the outside of...More

We were only able to view from outside as it was closed when we went, but it's a stunning piece of architecture. The Eastern Orthodox style stands out amongst the churches of Copenhagen. It's en route from the Design Museum to the Marble Church.

This church is beautiful, with its gold domes shimmering in the sun, and is so different from all the other churches in Copenhagen, as it is Russian Orthodox. And yet it does not appear on tourist maps, and we only came across it by chance....More

This is a really pretty church really overshadowed by the Marble Church in the same area. Its shame that we couldn't get inside when we visited but got a few nice photographs of the outside. If it wasn't so close to the Marble Church it...More

Want to see a bit of Russia but can't get a visa to do so? This church is straight out of Russian architecture. Its right past the dome cathedral so make sure you're looking up as you walk or you'll miss it.

Compared t all the other churches around this has the very different orthodox style and architecture and thus stands out as a big contrast. Never the less the golden domes stand out and if you catch them on a sunny day they will really shine...More

The only Russian Orthodox church in the city was built in 1883 and dedicated to the Russian patron saint Alexander Nevsky, which statue stands in a niche above the church bells. It is located very close to the Marble Church and well worth the visit.

This Russian Orthodox church is only a few yards away from the Marble Church. The façade is dominated by three gilded onion domes and lovely diaper brickwork. Unfortunately, it was closed when we visited.

as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
