Holy Transfiguration of Our Lord Russian Orthodox Church is a popular tourist site on the Kenai Peninsula. Turn west off the Sterling Highway at Milepost A 187.6 on gravel Orthodox Road which leads 0.4 mile west to the church. Limited parking and turnaround space in front of church.
Beautiful views and photo-ops of Cook Inlet, Ninilchik Village and church cemetery (especially when fireweed is in bloom). A small American Legion cemetery and Leo Steik Veterans Memorial Wall are also located here.
NOTE: This is an active church. Please respect church services and activities.
