  • The Church was built in honor of a significant event for the country's history-victory over Sweden at Poltava. Originally under the Decree of Tsar Peter the great at this location laid wooden church in thirty years smenivshuju its walls on stone.  In the guise of a building visible characteristics inherent in religious buildings of Moscow or Yaroslavl, were built in the 17 century.  The main value is the unique church carved iconostasis of the first half of the 18 century.

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.
