The St Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral, Nice, France, was opened in 1912. Since the mid-19th century, Russian nobility visited Nice and the French Riviera, following the fashion established decades earlier by the English upper class and nobility. The cathedral was consecrated in December 1912 in memory of Nicholas, brother of Alexander III, who died in Nice. The cathedral was constructed thanks to the generosity of Nikolay II; today it is the largest Russian Orthodox cathedral in Western Europe.
