Saint Nicholas Naval Cathedral
Address: 1, Nikolskaya Square
Saint Nicholas Naval Cathedral in Saint Petersburg
This cathedral was done in the so-called Elizabethan baroque style, built in the middle of the 18th century. It owes its name to its purpose – serving the Russian navy. The cathedral was erected in the area where the naval department and its barracks were located, and later on it was closely associated with the fleet, performing prayer services for its glory that commemorated dead sailors. And it is no accident that it is dedicated to St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, the patron saint of sailors and travelers.
We can visit the cathedral as part of a customized itinerary for the general sightseeing tour. This is an important place for Saint Petersburg, both in terms of its architecture and history.
