“Sheer beauty of blue and white”
Mar 9, 2018
“Rather large”
Although it suffered decades of disrepair and decay, this massive, deep blue-domed, Classical-style cathedral, with its impressive array of 24 Corinthian columns, is just beginning to be restored to its original splendor.

This was the first Cathedral I saw here in St. Petersburg and the outside is impressive but inside was staggering. It was renovated as it fell in disrepair during the Soviet era. But it is now a functioning Cathedral. Women must cover your head and...More

There are just so many churches and cathedrals in St Petersburg that after a while they all begin to merge. But the beauty of the city is that there are plenty of top tier sites within a relatively short distance of each other. Trinity Cathedral...More
