St. Nicholas Church is located north of the Venetian fortress. It was built in the 6th century in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but was destroyed a little later. Around 1200 it was restored, and at the end of the 16th century it was transferred to the Greek Orthodox community and began to bear the name of St. Nicholas.
The church was built in the form of a classical Byzantine basilica. It has a polygonal apse with low-level windows.
The interior of the church is represented by unique objects from the 15th - 16th centuries. Of interest is the iconostasis made by the Greek master of the 18th century Tomios Batos, as well as other valuable icons made by famous masters.
