An amazing church! Impressive building, very very photogenic. Both inside and outside. It has an interesting history (Wikipedia has a long and detailed write-up, they give much more information than any guide book!), and it is worth reading up. Built in the 1800's, it was a museum during communist rule. An attempt to return the building to the Russian Orthodox Church turned out to be unpopular (I was really surprised when our guide told us this!), so now it is still basically a museum, with services only on special feast days. Plenty of very interesting detail inside. Photos freely allowed. Well worth a visit. One bit of advice: try and go on a nice sunny day. It is difficult to appreciate the building and get good photos from outside if it is raining!

I think it's also one of the best place in Saint Petersburg to visit. Suggestion: People should go and see this place but the charges are around 800 Rubles . Tadka Indian Restaurant is very near to this place . The surrounding area of this place is also very beautiful.

We paid a quick visit to this Cathedral Museum as part of our 2 day tour of St Petersburg. The mosaics are reproductions of paintings which were deteriorating in the cold & damp conditions inside the cathedral. Really worth a look!

This is another must see church in the city. The inside of the church will leave you in awe. The artworks and architecture within the church are stunning. It takes at least 30 minutes to see the interior. Don't miss it!
