Nicholas Naval Cathedral

St. Petersburg, Russia
4.6 / 40
The temple was built on the site of the regimental sea courtyard in the middle of the XVIII century. The revered Christian shrine is stored in the cathedral - an icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker with a part of the holy relics. Since the end of the 19th century, a charitable society has been working at the church, which organized a shelter for older women, a school and a hospital. Memorial services in honor of the dead sailors are regularly held at St. Nicholas Cathedral.

Very bad, wouldn't recommend. They wont even let you stay at the entrance without "donating". Now don't get me wrong, i don't care that i have to pay 100 rubles but if i have to pay then don't call it a donation, sorry.

I had visited so many churches on this group tour by this point they begin to meld but this was enlivened by beautiful singing and a service. The usual glorious decorative standards.

Another astonishing cathedral in the city, definitely worth taking the time to visit and admire its gorgeous architecture. Free entrance, it's an active temple so most of the interiors are restricted for tourists.
