Huge cathedral, active for worship, very impressive by its resemblance with St. Pietro in Vatican. The position of the building on Nevsky Prospekt makes it a landmark of the town.

Located right on Nevsky Prospect it is easy to get to. The exterior belies a rather magnificent interior. Worth your time to visit.

If religion is your thing then its right up your street. The locals seemed to be kissing the icons and lighting candles. The best bit was it was one of the few free places to go in the city. Looks like St Peters in Rome...More

If you've ever been to Rome, it's like having in front of you a miniature of St. Peter's. It definitely is well worth entering. You should spend around half an hour there.

Metro station "Nevsky Prospekt" - access to the Canal. Or any transport, walking along the Nevsky prospect - buses and trolleybuses
