Our Lady of Kazan has a very loyal following. Young, old, male and female. They all come to pray to this saint and ask her for guidance. It was so moving that I stayed for almost 2 hours. I purchased my bundle of candles. Lit them slowly, one by one, and prayed for many people I love. This is a... More

Only by its size it will impress you, but the details of the architecture are also easy to recognize, inside is not such a great thing but still deserve a visit

The attempt to resemble to St. Peters in Rome is a bit clumsy but the interiors are well-arranged. The most thrilling part, if you're not particularly interested in the Sacred Icons, is the grave of general Kutuzov, the one who defeated Napoleon, surrounded by the insignia of the disbanded regiments of the Grand Armée.

Whilst taking a stroll along Nevsky Prospekt, the main thoroughfare in St. Petersburg, one cannot fail to notice the impressive Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan. The cathedral was inspired by the Basilica of St. Peter's in Rome. The cathedral was named after the "miracle-making" icon of Our Lady of Kazan. After the war of 1812 (during which Napoleon was...

Interior free to see but better to spend time on other attractions. Not bad at all but take a photo from outside and keep driving is the best idea

The church is basically a copy of St Peters church in Rome. It doesn't reduce the beauty of the church. The church has an icon, which is claimed to be miracle making, so locals are queuing to kiss it and to lit a candle next to it. It is absolutely worth visiting.
