Take time out and visit the Kazan Cathedral. Service is daily I believe at about 5.45 to 6pm Lots of wonderful art and space to walk around in a peaceful Cathedral.

This huge building with colonnaded wings just leaves you in awe and the best is tucked aay inside of the Cathedral itself. Stunning alters and interior architecture. Still a busy working church with services in progress and well used by locals

The cathedral was very easy to access because it was on Nervsky prospect. There was no admission charge. It was a normal in-use cathedral. The elegant part was the size of the cathedral.

This is a pleasant place to visit. Opposite the interesting Singer building this cathedral is nice but not spectacular.

Large Russian Orthodox cathedral on Nevsky Prospekt built in 1811 which was inspired by the Basilica of St. Peter's in Rome and was intended to be the country's main Orthodox Church.

Metro station "Nevsky Prospekt" - access to the Canal. Or any transport, walking along the Nevsky prospect - buses and trolleybuses
