    the fa��ade of the church

    The church of San Spiridione is a serbian-orthodox church - which reminds you of the fact that not a long time ago Trieste was once part of Jugoslavia - until Italy traded the Istrian peninsula for Trieste. This church is of recent construction (1868) and can seat about 1600 people. Inside you can see several interesting painting and frescos, but the highlight are 4 precious gilded russian icons

    the dome

    Here you see the wonderful frescoes that decorate the dome, the half-domes and the apse. The huge quantity of golden makes them more similar to mosaics.
