“Impressive Russian Orthodox Church”
This highly unusual church and one of the oldest in the city combines Baroque and Classical styles, is crowned by five different-sized onion-shaped cupolas and contains a unique iconostasis that is considered a great 18th-century work of art.

Beautiful. Also there is a gift stand inside where you can buy charms, chains, lockets,books, etc. They only take cash, no credit cards. Outside of the cathedral there are the various vendors selling various items too.

This impressive Orthodox church is located near the Vladimirskaya metro. The exterior is fairly much standard for an Orthodox church but the interior is quite impressive and is worth a look. Unfortunately, as with other orthodox churches, photos are discouraged inside.

Not so famous as central cathedrals, but it is a church which is not a museum, which has regular services and as I was there just after Orthodox Easter, there was a nice exhibition and Easter scene in the yard.

A church near our hotel, we visited it and ended up longer than planned. Lots of icons, figures, there was some ceremony when we were there. Take time to "feel" it. For me, it is a lovely, traditional church.

This church is located few blocks south of Nevsky prospect and really touched me. There , I could admire the orthodoxes rituals . The church has amazing onion domes.
