Visited from 27 Oct-30 Oct 2013 in the RAIN! It's a big and grandiose cathedral in which preachers go to to pray. To get there from the centre(Sumskaya St.), you'd need to go down the stairs to the fountains, then go across the bridge. Because it's very big, you CAN'T MISS IT! Inside it's quite big like that of the... More

Visit - it is a sumptuous treat for your senses and soul whether you are devout or non-believer.

Then he began yelling and... More
