The people, normal people, are to be seen here to say a quiet prayer or to share a thought in the heart of the city. If lucky, you'll visit coincides with a service; the chanting is beautiful, you just have to sit down and settle down. Only crack to the serenity is presented by an occasional group of tourists with... More

This is a place of worship so be respectful while visiting. There was a service in progress during our visit and a queue to pray at the icon of Our Lady of Kazan. A good place for some quiet time away from the bustle of Nevskiy Prospekt

Just wonderful inside. Another extremely beautiful and awesome cathedral. Extremely worth of visiting. Outside maybe slightly rugged but don't let it mislead.

This place is huge and impressive but the best bit is on the inside! I was impressed by the size of it while we walked around but it's only when we entered did we discover the real beauty. This place is so spiritual, it feels old and it feels authentic. I'm not a religious person but it certainly made me... More

Firstly the Kazan Cathedral is a fully working church so it doesn't have the same information or guides as the likes of St Isaac's. This means no photos as well but it also means it is free to go in. The building itself is impressive and worth walking all the way round the small grounds. Inside are fabulous icons and... More
