Naval Cathedral of St. Nicholas, Kronshtadt

(4.9/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
View stunning architecture and design from the early 20th century at Naval Cathedral of St. Nicholas, the main church of the Russian Navy. After several failed architecture competitions, admiral Stepan Makarov hired Vasily Kosyakov, a Neo-Byzantine architectural master, to design the church. Construction on the large Russian Orthodox cathedral began in 1901 and continued until 1913, when it was opened to the public and dedicated to Navy servicemen who died at sea. Though the cathedral was converted to a cinema, and later a museum of the Navy, it was eventually reclaimed by the church. Nowadays you can tour the well-preserved structure.

  • I recommend to go in spring! Greatness and inviolability, the strength and power of the country. That's what comes to mind from visiting the Holy places.

  • Big and epic. Indeed, no worse than Isaac. Anchor square itself is also very beautiful. And the Cathedral and Piazza just fabulous look on a sunny day!
