Kazansky CathedralEdit This
This is a very special cathedral for the residents of St Petersburg. It was built between 1801 and 1811 to a design drawn by Voronikhin. The cathedral was built to house the miracle-working icon of Our Lady of Kazan (the icon is now kept in the Prince Vladimir Cathedral). Kazansky Cathedral was constructed in the shape of a Latin cross. The side facing Nevsky Prospect boasts a colonnade of 96 columns. Exhibitions are held here regularly according to the Orthodox church and the Ecclesiastical art.
It is very easy to get to the cathedral. Take a metro train to Nevsky Prospect, get up the elevator leading to Griboedova Canal. The building opposite the subway exit is the cathedral.
