Trieste, borderland on the sea, is a real melting pot of different cultures, as shown by the magnificent churches of many religions: San Nicolò Greek Orthodox Church, San Spiridione Serbian Orthodox Church, the synagogue and the Lutheran Evangelical Church.
The Greek neoclassical Church stands by the sea, near the historical Caffè Tommaseo. Inside the building you'll notice the small silver icon of Jesus, whose look seems to be following you while you move.
Along the Ponterosso canal, instead, stands the Serbian Orthodox Temple with its 5 blue domes. You have to go inside to enjoy the mystical atmosphere and the several frescoes on the ceiling, such as the wonderful starred sky.
The monumental synagogue in Piazza Giotti was built to replace four other smaller synagogues already present in the city. The temple is still very important today on the European scene. It's possible to visit the synagogue in certain given days during the week.
