Wery nice church, although this time the visit to the tower was not available. It's maybe the most popular place in the Kronshtadt.

As it was Sunday there was a service going on, very interesting. No photography is allowed inside but whether that was because there was a service I don't know.

A vast structure, lush gilded decorations, and, sadly, dozens of memorial plaques with hundreds of names of sailors lost in sea battles and storms, with dates and brief descriptions of tragic events
