This cathedral was recommended by our guide and proved to be a highlight on an otherwise rainy day. The interior is gorgeous and well worth the visit. The adjacent bell tower made beautiful music. My only wish was that official church pictures would have been...More

Its the patron church of the Russian Navy..a very beautiful church. Recommend that you climb right to the top to get a good view of the harbour.

Another amazing Cathedral in St. Petersburg Cathedral is St. Nicolas that was handed over to the Naval Ministry in 1900 and became officially titled the Naval Cathedral of St. Nicholas

It had spent most of it's life as a museum, so it is well marked. The space is massive and the artworks beautiful. It's a must see on the St. Petersburg list!

This church is gorgeous and not so popular with tourists, because of its location. It's absolutely worth a visit if you can get there!

This is a beautiful church, and the town has an exciting history. A must see is the icon of Tsar Nicolai, the last tsar of Russia. It’s supposed to be the only one!

Not sure I would make this a must see but if you here it’s OK. Easy access from nearby parking. The building itself is fairly impressive and worth a quick photo. Lots of history here.

I did not know the place was so far away from St. Peterburg center. It took me an hour to get there. I did not plan to go that far actually. It was an astounding church in the middle of an old boring naval village....More

I visited this place with my friends. Despite weather was grey as usual church looks absolutely incredible. It was designed to be seen from sea. Pay attention at naval anchors at roof decor. Inside its quite classic, however inside its very atmospheric and multi layers...More
