St. Nicolas Cathedral is an Orthodox cathedral in St. Petersburg. It was build in 1753-1762. It is the most important and best-preserved artistic achievement of the Russian architect Savva Chevakinsky, as well as a glorious example of Elizabethan baroque style.  One of the most beautiful temples in St. Petersburg. This 18th century monument of baroque architecture is a place not to be missed.

This cathedral is very pretty. It is similar to Smolny (which in my opinion is a bit more impressive) but this church is still very picturesque. It is an active church, so tourists are only allowed inside by prearranging a visit. I hadn’t known that so did not get to see the inside.

This is another photogenic church in Saint Petersburg. Nikolsky Cathedral is at the western edge of the historic city centre. Its light blue facade is very eye-catching. The interior is typical Eastern Orthodox style. Unfortunately no photo is allowed inside the cathedral.

This is too expensive for my seven kids and me. It’s not even that much fun when you have to pay more than your fishing equipment.
