Once upon a time a Jesus of Nazareth expelled merchants from a Jerusalem temple only because they traded in its courtyard (not inside, like in this Navy Cathedral) but present-day local priests seem to lack knowledge of it. At least one can observe a lady in black with her face mask on - coronavirus! - chanting: Tickets to the top! Tickets to the top! Hurry up! Please assemble here! And all this show enrolls in close vicinity of the backs of three clergymen solemnly serving a mess. Cirque du Soleil! I was also shocked to see a holy water font in the form of a submarine - thanks God, diesel and not nuclear. There's a special sign nearby clarifying this issue and proudly announcing that this doodah is world-unique. I'd guess so... Otherwise the place is a hit.

We stopped here on our way back from Peterhof (travelling by car with our guide from Tzarina Tours) and were very pleasantly surprised. Probably the most impressive of all the functioning Orthodox Churches we visited in Russia (the best was Church of the Saviour of Spilled Blood but that is now a museum). There was a ceremony inside while we were there and also a naval graduation ceremony outside. Well worth including if you have the time.

Like most Russian Cathedrals, they are amazing places of worship. This one is probably the only thing to see in Kronstadt other than the naval ships and the scenery on the way there.

Kronstadt is rarely visited by tourists ( unfortunately) as it’s a significant part of Russian history and perfect place to feel local atmosphere especially in summer , recommended
