  • Found this Cathedral quite accidentally walking along Ligovskomu Avenue. Attracted unusual architecture, the entrance is made in a semicircle in the center of the high Bell Tower, around the edges of the small chapel. If you pass through the entrance within the courtyard lies a beautiful five domed Cathedral, painted in a bright pink color. Like many churches in the years of Soviet power, the inside of the temple was badly damaged and were installed in the building housed shops. Currently only external restoration, only dismantled inside ceiling and Cathedral presents itself in all its original splendour, but restoration of the Interior is not yet implemented. On the walls are photographs and articles about the fate of the temple and the stages of its renaissance. Very quiet and peaceful place, one of the finest specimens of the architecture of St. Petersburg.

  • Cossack Cathedral of the exaltation of me very much. Of course, a whole lot of cathedrals in St. Petersburg and everyone chooses for himself his favorite. But you cannot get past this. amazingly beautiful, standing aside from the standard tourist routes. On it-case without even knowing that there is such a miracle. Very nice place providing sufficient positive energy.
