  • Interior of Russian Orthodox Church

    Russian Orthodox churches are typically richly decorated with gold icons and numerous religious symbols. Even in the smallest port communities, the churches are lavishly decorated. Russian Orthodox churches are found in a dozen port communities and include Unalaska, Kodiak, Seldovia, Juneau, and Sitka, to name a few. These churches continue to have active congregations and are a rare glimpse into Russian-American culture that began in the late 1700's. All churches offer cultural tours.
