“Beautiful Orthodox Church”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

Still very much functioning as a place of worship this church is a must see. Amazing architecture from the outside and a beautiful interior full of candles and locals praying. Really interesting to see a church still working and nice to see it not turned into a tourist money trap. Definitely worth a see is its beautiful location among the canals.

“Jewel in the Crown”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

You can see this in the distance from the Ambassador Hotel, so we had to go. Found 2 resturants, so 3 great reasons to visit.

“Picturesque”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Blue and white on the outside, and a pretty sight, especially viewed across the canal. The interior is dark and less interesting, and it is a working church, so silence, no photography and no sinful women's hair on view.
