St.Petersburg

Churches and monasteries of St. Petersburg

share
St. Petersburg is home to many different churches and monasteries, all with beautiful architecture. Of course there is St. Isaac’s Cathedral, which is the largest Russian Orthodox Cathedral in the city, and one of the largest domed cathedrals in the world. It houses a museum, and it is possible to walk up to the colonnade for fantastic views of the city. The distinctive Church of the Saviour on the Spilt Blood is no longer consecrated, but is now a museum of mosaics. The unique Kazan Cathedral dominates Nevsky Prospect, and the Troitsky Cathedral with its blue domes overlooks the Fontanka Canal.
Other religious buildings include the St. Petersburg Mosque, which opened in 1913, and is located opposite the Peter and Paul Fortress.
These buildings give wonderful glimpses into Russia’s past.
