St Petersburg is such a pretty place! It's like Venice or even Paris with abundant ancient architecture in the entire city. The Fortress is pretty and majestic. It's certainly worth a visit.

This Cathedral is something unique! It's Incredibly beautiful and very unusual decor of colorful fretwork makes it not only one of the best-looking ortodox churches but also one of the most interesting ones!

The main thing that sets this cathedral apart from similar cathedrals in other parts of Russia is the style used in the decoration of the cathedral.
