kazan-cathedral
The main Orthodox church of St. Petersburg, where the icon of the Kazan Mother of God is stored. The cathedral was built by the architect A. Voronikhin in the Empire style. The foundation stone was laid in the presence of Alexander I. The interiors are decorated with monumental colonnades and more resemble a palace than a church. The icons for the church were painted by famous masters O. Kiprensky, A. Ivanov and others.

Impressing cathedral both from the inside and outside. The pillar structure that can be seen from far away from the cathedral is also dominant in the interior design. A must see place in St. Petersburg.

It was my first time at Russia and I was impressed by this cathedral’s beauty. The old paintings and the great fountain in front of it which produces cold water to cool your body temperature. It is simply a great place ❤️

Kazan Cathedral is right in the middle of the Tourist District of Saint Petersburg. As a visitor you are free to enter, if you're woman you are asked to cover your head, and as a man you are required to remove your headgear. Its a fascinating ch.. Read more »

One of the most beautiful cathedrals in Saint Petersburg. It may seem a bit too dark from the inside, and the crowds are tough sometimes (both inside and on the small square outside).
