St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church

Built in 1893, St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church is a historic landmark and wonderfully preserved example of religious efforts in this cold, snowy frontier state. Though one might assume the church was founded by Russian immigrants or missionaries, none actually ever set foot in Juneau. Instead, the Russian Orthodox Church gained a faithful following with the local Tlingit leaders. The church liturgy and scriptures were translated into local languages, bringing many natives to worship in this small town church. The converted Tlingit leaders who became baptized and instructed to lead the church as priests, built one of the most successful churches in Alaska.

This beautiful, historic church is still in operation today. The church is open for respectful visitors and faithful staff are always happy to answer questions about the church's history in Juneau.
