Church Website

There has been an Orthodox presence in the Netherlands since the 17th century, attended by Russian and Greek merchants and seamen. This church, founded in 1974 under the protection of Saint Nicholas—one of the most important saints in Russia and patron and protector of Amsterdam—moved to the former Immanuel Church on the Kerkstraat in 1995. In 2005 the parish moved to Tichelkerk in the Jordaan district.
