Nikolaev temples

Price: 90.00 USD (1 person) - 100.00 USD (up to 4 persons)

There were 45 churches in our city before the 1917. Among them were the Orthodox churches, Catholic cathedral, Lutheran church, Jewish synagogues. One can see majestic icons in Nikolaev churches as well as the ancient iconostasis, can stand by the tombs of the churches founders (they are buried in the churches’ vaults), enjoy wall paintings in the revived churches.

… A couple of years ago a coffin was found in the vault of one of the churches: a clothed female skeleton, a hand clenching a cross and a dried bunch of flowers. Who was she and why was she buried in a deep vault?

… In the period of the churches’ destruction the soil was often sinking under the feet of the people, opening mysterious underground tunnels. Where do they lead? Why were the churches built over them? What was discovered down there?

… While repairing a church, bullet holes were noticed on one of the icons. Who could raise his hand against the sacred? And why did the founder of the Catholic church bequeathed to bury himself in a catacomb under the church? And how Saint Nicholas saved our city during the war – all of this you can hear and see during the excursion.

Excursion duration is 2 hours and it includes transportation by car, professional guide and interpreter.

Dear GoToNikolaev.com Team, First, I want to apologize for not getting back to you for quite some time. I’ve been traveling a lot and, generally, very very busy. But better late than never… Back in February, you (Dmitry) helped me find an old friend of mine whom I hadn’t heard from for unusually long time. I tried to call him many times but it sounded like no one was picking up. I was afraid that something happened to him. I spent a lot of time browsing the Net to see if I could find out if his phone number had changed – no luck. Unfortunately, there isn’t much information on the Net about residential phone numbers in small cities in Ukraine. I couldn’t even find out how to call the Phone Information from outside the area. And then, I got lucky enough to find GoToNikolaev.com. Dmitry e-mailed me my friend’s new number in the matter of hours. This was fantastic! And not just the result. Everything was done very professionally and respectfully. Truly, a world class service. I would recommend it to any anyone. So please accept my very sincere gratitude and appreciation and my best wishes to you and your service!
