This is within a stone's throw of the Kodiak Wildlife Refuge welcome center, the Baranov and the Alutiiq museum. Beautiful Russian Orthodox chapel. We were greeted by a clergyman who explained the significance of St. Herman (one of the four saints of Alaska) who stopped the tsunami wave and a storm. His remains are there. Beautiful artwork. Worth the few minutes to stop in and see.

I stayed at St. Herman's on a pilgrimage as an Orthodox Christian, all the Clergy, Monks and Matushka's were warm and inviting. Attending services at St. Herman's was a beautiful experience, we were truly blessed to be part of such an amazing community!

So much to see and our tour guide told us all sorts of information about this place. It is so small and the services were long can't imagine standing all that time.

This is a beautiful little chapel easily walked to. It provides insights to the history of Kodiak and Alaska. Inside are beautiful icons and outside is an interesting bell display.

We were in Kodiak in June and were greatly upset to see such a wonderful icon of history, St Herman's Chapel having been vandalised. Lots of windows had been smashed the night before and then had to be boarded up. You wonder why people can't respect a wonderful piece of history.

One of the oldest landmarks in Kodiak, tours are possible, but it's hard to get a hold of someone. Working bell tower & they even get musical on Orthodox Holidays. A must check out if your in Kodiak.

Worth the trip up the hill to see the mixture of Alaskan and Russian religious heritage. Didn't know what to expect but it had a number of very interesting things to see.

Hard to get a hold of anyone via e-mail or church phone number, but they do list personal numbers online. Finally got a hold of someone and set up a tour of the chapel and seminary. Absolutely wonderful - totally personal, great touch of Alaskan culture, Russian culture, Orthodox culture. Wonderful to get a chance to venerate St. Herman's relics and learn about such recent Orthodox history. Great afternoon!

the priests are very friendly when they saw me taking fotos outside and invited me to go inside. So beautiful, cute and you think you are in a church in Russia.
