  • 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!

  • 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.
