4.9/5 based on 1,500+ 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.

  • Excursions are held in the Cathedral with the Bell Tower. The exact schedule is not know, but Saturday at 1 pm, we were on October 8. From the Bell Tower offers stunning views. Excursion short, quite tired. Worth 200 r. May, it will be difficult for small children to climb, because high-40 m.

  • This island, being home to a strategic naval base, was difficult to access from the Soviets and prohibited to foreigners. Times have changed, has built a road to the sea and restored the Church. 2013 only reopened for worship, the Interior looks more like that of the mosques. The more than 90 meters high damage to frescoes, mosaics, altars, icons that richer cannot be imagined. The distance from town are neglecting by mass tourism. Too bad.
