  • Beautiful on the outside. In the midst of restoration of the temple, a location nearby, and inside the Cathedral.

  • The outside is beautiful. I advise to visit. Recovery is very slow. We visited the temple, first in may, then in December 2016, as it is not noticeable that much restored. Money is probably not enough. Leave a donation for the construction of the temple. Let this shrine doesn't look dull and cold, and pleases us life-giving atmosphere.

  • A beautiful temple with neoclassical whose bell tower stands out for its three levels and the door by way of "Arch of triumph". Gable is a relief of the Trinity and the "eye of God" which emanate flashes. The complex is Crescent-shaped and there are various niches with statues of the Apostles (St. Peter, St. Paul...). Inside there is a shop selling religious items at affordable price, where we were welcomed in a family way... make you feel at home. Trivia: The sale of vintage photographs with the leading of the Romanov family (the Tsar Nicholas II and family were canonized as martyrs by the Russian Orthodox Church). Petersburgo enjoy an Imperial City... a beautiful city. LIFE...! It is a trip!

  • 성 십자가 성당. 러시아에 있으니 러시아 정교회의 건물이겠지? 꽤 넓은 공간이고 규모가 있는 교회로 보였다. 안에 들어가보고 싶었는데 그러지 못한 게 아쉽다.
  • Marvelous cathedral, the interior is still under renovation but I think the way it is now is perfect, sometimes is better to preserve rather than restore.
  • Not a lot of exciting places of interest around, but the Cathedral is beautiful.
  • the Cossack Cathedral of the Exaltation of the Cross. one of my favourite cathedrales in town. been there in summer 2015 when its exterior was under renovation, yet the golden domes were already shining. its interior was in a rather poor and unrenovated state, yet with a lot of flair and charme. returned in january 2016 when the church's exterior was finalised and the interior was closed due to major renovation.
  • Krestovozdvizhenskaya Church. Built from 1848 to 1851 year. Draft Ei Dimmerta. Restoration has dragged on for 20 years. Long was closed. Opened two years ago. Inside has not fully restored.

Best things to do in St. Petersburg

Where to stay in St. Petersburg

For luxury hotels with a price tag to match, you can't beat the city's historical heart--Palace Square--and Nevsky Prospekt, the main avenue that connects the square to the Neva River. The area around St. Isaac's Cathedral, at the west end of Nevsky Prospekt, also offers a great selection of luxury and mid-range options. If you want to see the other side of the city, consider staying on Vasilyevsky Island, at the mouth of the river. Increased competition means that St. Petersburg now offers a wide range of inexpensive but funky hostels scattered throughout the city.
