Chesma Church i one of the some churches, there are in St. Petersburg. It is located in the surroundings of the city and it is a curious and wonderful orthodox church. Really the facade is different and fantastic! it was built at the end of the 18th Century and it is really small, but very beautiful. It was built to commemorate the Battle of Chesme, a great victory for Russian Army against Turks. It is located in a little square, bit you can go around all the church. Very nice and tiny. Wonderful!

The church is very easy to access, as it is only a 10 minute walk from a metro station. It is so pretty that I definitely recommend going to see it. If you don’t have a lot of time in St. Petersburg and the church is far out of your way, you don’t have to inconvenience yourself to go see it. But if you have the chance, definitely go!

For many, Chesme Church is a love at first sight. The photogenic combination of pink and white forms a lovely picture. Despite of its fairy-tale like facade, it was a direct product of the war against the Ottoman Empire. The interior is non-remarkable.

The inside of the church isn't anything unique, but the outside is. The colour and design of the outside is beautiful.

Not easy to reach the church, due to lack of signals. Get out of the Moskovskaya Metro station and cross the garden going left. Walk the street for 5 minutes and you will find it.
The facade is absolutely spectacular.

Very nice and charming little church that reminded us of a cupcake. Entry is free and there were not many tourists when we were there (September). As a woman, I had to cover my head, something that is generally custom when you visit orthodox churches in Russia (unless it is a museum, but this is an active church).

Church of Saint John the Baptist at Chesme Palace or the Church of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. This is a small Russian Orthodox church situated at 12 Lensoveta Street. Simply beautiful with a gothic facade. Well worth the walk from Moskovskaya metro station. It is worth going inside and it is free.

It is situated between St. Petersburg & Peterhof & off the beaten track. But if you get the opportunity to see it do not miss it. It is a small church with a candy striped exterior which is quite unique. It is lovely inside as well.

This is an active Greek Orthodox church very near the Memorial to the Lenningrad seige. The church is off the beaten path but well worth diverting your itinerary. The architecture is unique and it reminded me of a wedding cake. Once inside, you view a beautiful altar and gold icons. But you are asked not to take photos inside.
