St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral is a Greek Orthodox parish and center for Greek-American life in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Its noted Neo-Byzantine church is located at 36 North Pinellas Avenue.
St. Nicholas hosts an annual Epiphany celebration on January 6, in which Greek Orthodox boys aged 16 to 18 dive into Spring Bayou to retrieve a white wooden cross, said to bring the finder good luck for the year. It is the largest such event in the Western Hemisphere, with thousands in attendance. A statue of an epiphany diver is located in front of the church.

  • Absolutely Amazing Church! It’s in a historic Area in Tarpon Springs Florida. The Cathedral is Beautiful. I like going in once in a while and lighting a candle. It’s very peaceful. This Greek Orthodox Church is a Must See if you are in The Tarpon Springs area! Here are some Pictures of the Church inside and outside as well.
  • Great art and very inviting atmosphere. Took a group of students there and they were in awe of the beautiful artwork. They understood many of the biblical images but enjoyed even the ones they didn't recognize. There's so much culture here that you need time to soak it in.
