Russian Orthodox Church

Constructed during the late 1800’s, this is where the orthodox Russians gather on Christmas and Easter festivities. An experience you shouldn’t miss!

The Russian orthodox church “To Holy Nikolaus” was constructed between 1893 and 1899 and has since fulfilled its purpose as the religious centre for the Russian community in Vienna.

The elaborate service during the Orthodox Christmas- and Easter-festivities is well visited by the chic and groomed Russians, but also by representatives of other religious yearnings who come to hear the beautiful singing by the church choir and enjoy the wafts incense.
