  • In 19 November Saturday visited concert "dialogues of the Kings. Vivaldi-Bach "by Margaret Es'kinoj (organ) and Vladimir Parunceva (recorder). It's not been on the organ concert, the most pleasant impressions and emotions from sounding classics in this Council. The wonderful acoustics, virtuoso performance (especially struck Allegro Vivaldi, previously never hear the organ). The concert lasts about an hour, Hall is pretty cool, despite the complete sell-out, it's better to dress warmly.

  • The history of the Catholic Church of St. Catherine started back in the year 1731 to resolve of Empress Anna Ioannovna-on Nevsky Prospekt on draft p. Trezzini, but after his departure in 60-ies of XVIII century, there was an unsuccessful attempt to finish construction by the architect J.b. Vallin Delomotom, and only in the year 1782 the building of the temple was completed by Italian architects Minchiani and a. Rinaldi. 7 October 1783, Temple, poluchivshijj, Cathedral status was ovsjashhen in honor of St. Catherine of Alexandria, patroness of Empress Catherine II. In 1798 there was buried last Polish King. Stanisław August Poniatowski (later was reburied in Poland). And in the year 1813 French General Jean Victor Moreau. Here got married and baptized the son of famous architect Architect-author and Builder of the famous St. Isaac's Cathedral. In February 1984, after a fire-destroyed the Interior, fire burned all the sculptures, remnants of murals, marble altar and 12-meter-long body of the 18th century. And only in the beginning of 90-ies of XX century began the restoration of the Catholic Church in Russia. In the year 2013 the Church was given the status of a minor Basilica, she became the only Basilica in Russia. The church operates resurrection school. Organ concerts are held regularly and meeting with the artists. Capacity of the temple about two thousand people. This temple differs from other presence on the perimeter of 4-x evangelists and angels, holding a cross. I really liked the decoration of this church, which differs significantly from the decoration of Russian Orthodox churches. Recommend to visit this temple. Sign up here free, taking pictures of the inside of the Church is not prohibited.
