  • Once the main shrine of the Cathedral was a list of the Vladimir icon of the mother of God, written by order of Peter I specifically for Kronstadt in the year 1703. The image was filled with oil on metal and decorated with gilded copper. On the icon was the inscription: "this image is written the year may 29 ZCI day salary made year 1735 February 20-th day. The image was located on the right side of the Royal doors. In the 1931 year icon was removed, her fate is unknown. Stone Temple instead of wooden predecessors was built in the late 19th century. Now it is hard to imagine that St. Volodymyr's Cathedral, injured during the war years, blew three times in the 1950-ies. As a result of explosive works were destroyed altar, porch and belfry. However, the building of the Cathedral opposed trying to destruction, but neighbouring houses were covered with dangerous cracks. So from soboravynuzhdenno were receded. The building was unoccupied long enough; Although there were projects properties it pool or stables in the year 1990 the Cathedral was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church in a State of disrepair. In building conservation works were carried out and services were held in a temporary Church of all saints. In 1999 year began service in the lower Church of the icon of the Theotokos "assuage my sorrow". Now, admiring the unique building and its interiors in the head does not fit, we could lose this beauty. Cathedral of interest so that the inside of the traditional Russian church architecture of the 17th century, you can see the layout and decoration in the Byzantine style. Both are impressive.

  • Somewhere, walking around the city, somewhere on the car, came to this temple. A little away from the tourists. It fell into the hands of the Orthodox newspaper kronstadt. Its charm in the local newspapers. The most pleasant impressions. You want to return))
