The Naval Cathedral of Saint Nicholas in Kronstadt, Kronshtadt

(4.9/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
View stunning architecture and design from the early 20th century at The Naval Cathedral of Saint Nicholas in Kronstadt, 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.

  • Finally completely renovated Cathedral gives a chance to the Kronstadt become a tourist city. In the temple hang boards with losses of the Russian fleet in the history of existence. They are very interesting to study, you learn a lot of interesting things, such as pro Russian-English war 1807-1812 year.

  • The Cathedral itself is fascinating, but the impression spoils everything that surrounds it! It seems that Krondshtat have simply forgotten. Maybe winter isn't the best period this city;(. But the impression left a very unpleasant! The Cathedral is worth it to come to this city, but unfortunately only the Cathedral!

  • Strikes Majesty buildings. I was lucky, I had the opportunity to see the temple with the height of bird flight (excursion on a light plane), it's delicious. But to really begin to wonder, getting inside! The Temple will make a special impression on the sailors or people one way or another related to shipping! Be sure to plan a trip to kronstadt and visit the "naval Cathedral".
