St Nicolas Russian church nice

Author 'Chtivenol' (Id 115062 ) : Because of the importance of the Russian community located in Nice during the second half of the nineteenth century, it was decided to build a Russian church in the city. The Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna in 1856 launched a subscription and the church Saint-Nicolas and Saint-Alexandra Street Longchamp was inaugurated in 1859 [1]. It is then the first Russian church of Western Europe [2]. But soon it became too small for the Russian colony which continued to grow. The need for a new place of worship was felt. In 1903, the park Bermond, began construction of a cathedral [1]. It was here in 1865, the Tsarevich Nicolas Alexandrovich, son of Alexander II, had died at the age of twenty years as a result of meningitis when he was staying at the villa that Bermond his father had rented [3]. Shortly after, it bought the park, razed the house and had built a chapel in honor of her son at the exact spot where it died [3].
