    A small, modest church, set in attractive grounds. Apparently the oldest in Pushkin. You'll probably pass it on the way to Catherine Palace and it's an interesting contrast to the grandeur that awaits you.

    This little known cathedral is delightful. Nestled among the trees near the Catherine Palace it is a place of quiet reflection and makes a change from the busy attractions

    This is the place where the great rulers of Russia are buried. The site they are buried is the one they chose while they were alive.

    The cathedral is located in a large area which resembles a fort from the outside. There's a cannon that is fired each day at noon. During season there's also a helicopter ride for about 15 mins. that gives one a panoramic view of the city of St. Petersburg

    Trinity Cathedral in St. Petersburg is an architectural monument of late classicism. It got its name from the Izmailovsky Regiment, one of the oldest in Russia. The regiment was founded by Empress Anna Ioannovna in 1730 under the name of the village of Izmailovsky in the suburbs. Often called the Trinity Izmailovsky Church. It is one of the most monumental in the Northern capital.

    The building has quite a history.
    Emperor Alexander II gave his permission for the project in 1869. But it took 10 years to find a suitable place. The Jewish congregation bought the plot of land in 1879 and announced a competition. The best architects participated, but the tsar wanted the building to be somewhat smaller. The architects remolded the design for free.
    Year 1883 the construction works began. Ten years later, in 1893 the synagogue was inaugurated. But it took 12 years more to complete the interiors and install the fence of wrought iron.
    It was Saturday when I passed by, so I couldn't get in. But I'll try next time, I heard there are tours organised by the Museum of various religions.

    This church is situated a little bit aside from the main masterpieces - Tsarskoye sell and Pavlovsk, but it is definitely recommended for visit. Rich history, traditional Russian frescoes and warm atmosphere are incomparable!

    A very beautiful mosque.
    I don't often visit St. Petersburg, and always, when I passed it, I admired it from afar.
    This time I was close and decided to come closer.
    Outside, the mosque is splendidly decorated with tiles similar to those that are used to cover the buildings of mosques and madrasahs in Uzbekistan.
    Unfortunately, for a year now, the mosque has not been allowed inside because of the pandemic.

    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!
