St. Michael’s Cathedral

St. Michael’s Cathedral located in Sitka, Alaska is of the Orthodox Church of the Diocese of Alaska. As the earliest Orthodox cathedral in the New World, it was built when Alaska was in control of Russia. Since 1962 it has been a National Historic Landmark. Once you enter the church you immediately notice most of the original collection that had embellished the earlier cathedral such as Our Lady of Sitka. The display cases surrounding the chapel also contain treasures from the original chapel that was destroyed by accidental fire in 1966. Italian Roccocco design can be found on some of the doors, while the silver plated style of the eighteenth and nineteenth century can be seen in the icons of Christ the Savior and the Virgin Mary. It is a stunning experience.
