Well-cared and beautiful church with some historical meaning to Russian orthodox. Not as crowded as some other churches on Mount of Olives but nevertheless it's not to miss!

You have to read about this place before you visit . About the Russians orthodoxs who came to visit the holy places.

The Russian Orthodox compound is not always open to the general public but is for Russians. It is a beautiful complex upon an area with rich Christian history. and fabulous views as it is on Mt.of Olives.

This is the most wonderful and peaceful place on the Mount of Olives. It is often missed from every ones lists. Only open Tuesday And Thursday until 1pm. The sisters are very friendly and very happy to answer any questions you have. Add this to your trip and you won't be disappointed.
