Russian Orthodox Church in Sitka

Sitka, Alaska is located on Baranof Island and is the only town to face the Gulf of Alaska. It was once a Russian town before the purchase of Alaska in 1867. At that time is was known as New Arkangelsk. About 8900 people live there.

This is St. Michael's Russian Orthodox Church in downtown Sitka.

  1. Looks like a thriving little island town. Big enough to have several car rental companies.
