“A tribute to the Russian Imperial Navy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

A splendid blue orthodox church at a canal close to Mariinsky. Typical outside architecture. Inside a two-storied church, ground floor for baptem and burrial, first floor for marriage. Should you be lucky a wedding ceremony might take place. It's great.

I was fortunate enough that a ceremony was underway... Do pay attention to your dress as a strict code is in effect...
