Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, Peterhof
(4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Visit Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul and admire its red-brick walls, glazed tiles, ornate decoration, and five spires arranged in the shape of a tent. The story goes that the cathedral was built in the Neo-Russian style in 1904 for common people, who were not allowed into palace churches. A viewing platform around the church's 60 m (197 ft) high central spire provides views over the marshland and pine forest all the way to St. Petersburg. The interior of the church features three icon-stands: two made of white Carrara marble and one of majolica. Climb the high, well-lit gallery to look for the special places for consecrating eggs and Easter cakes. Make Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul a part of your Peterhof vacation plans using our Peterhof itinerary builder.

  • Is a great and beautiful Orthodox Cathedral located inside the Peter and Paul Fortress. With a high tower and Golden domes, is a very interesting building. Internally the roof, the columns, the pulpit, the altar are true works of art, where the Golden predominates. It is worth visiting.

  • Emotion to feel close part of world history. The tombs of tsars and Grand Dukes to the fingertips... Catherine the great there and beyond the salvage of the pathetic family of Nicolas ll. .... This sepia photo of books with people's sad eyes and the account of how identified... All part of a gripping saga in the midst of the Citadel of the Neva to lovers of history without a doubt. Everything is must-see.

  • שוב קתדרלה גדולה ומרשימה. המון שיש וזהב כיאה לאיזור ממלכת בית רומנוב. תצפית יפה על האיזור. מקום מרשים ואתר תיירות מן החשובים ברוסיה.

  • The church is located opposite the Peterhof. Most visitors like to visit this red brick. Outside is an orthodox church that so beautiful and look like the Church of our Savior on the Spilled Blood. Its building was damaged during the World War II and closed for years till reopened again after renovation.
  • It seems taking photograph inside the church is forbiden.
  • Awesome
  • Very beautiful church. Inside too
  • It is worth to pay a visit to this beautiful church.
