  • Been here 2 times, very emotional place. You can go inside the Chapel to pray, come to the shrine, some do not come, and clamped down on to the wall and pray. Don't forget to bring flowers, gift Ksenjushke, necessarily odd number and write a little note asking (her leave on the street around the icons) around the chapel of bypass 3 times (so it is got.) say that there should be only one request, then it is executed! Good trip! And the weather!

  • The most esteemed Holy in St. Petersburg, so decided to visit this place. Metro station Vasileostrovskaya to Smolensk cemetery can be reached by bus, you can walk, Walk takes about 15 minutes. If you are going to leave a note asking, in the Internet you can find the full ritual. People near the Chapel is always much. I was just before Memorial Day, so stood first and foremost the candle on the street put and then turn into the chapel. We must pay tribute to the workers, the flow of people they regulate, so the queue goes pretty quickly. In the chapel of long stay does not have to, but pray and touch icon time enough. Nobody chases, well very asking long does not linger, because on the street tend to be very much willing to always surprised that in the queue in the chapel was many men. Next to the chapel of the tomb of Edward Gil. On Smolensk cemetery was the first burial place of Taras Shevchenko, as written in stone, where there was a tomb.

  • the Chapel is open until 17 days during the winter. If you want to venerate the relics, try to dress for the weather-often have to stand in line. St. Xenia the blissful believe ambulance Assistant. A very nice Chapel. and if you are a believer, then recommend to go.
