St.Petersburg

Sightseeing

Smolny Cathedral

The view over the city from this blue unique cathedral is worth the climb to the top of one of the bell-towers. Smolny, once the centre-piece of a convent founded to educate young noblemen and women, is nowadays one of the most amazing baroque cathedrals of the city. From the nearby neo-classical Smolny Institute, Lenin orchestrated the October Revolution in 1917.
