Nikolsky Naval Cathedral

Architect Savva Chevakinsky, 1762. A baroque masterpiece with a capacity of 5,000. The key relic here is the Nikolai the Miracle-Worker Icon (17th Century) with part of his remnants. The iconostasis carved in the 18th Century has been preserved, and on the memorial boards can be found lists of sailors killed in the Battle of Tsushima against the Japanese. The cathedral wasn’t closed in the wake of the Revolution and it even continued to operate during the Siege of Leningrad.

Julia, i tuoi scatti fanno capire il cuore caldo della tua freddissima città.

Stella gialla per questa, perchè il bianco e l'oro mi sembrano i colori più giusti per la Russia del XVIII secolo.

Ciao, Stefano

Ciao Vincenzo, come stai? Ti devo confessare che a volte, a miei fotografie, mi abbellisco la realtà ... Sei stato mai a San Pietroburgo d'inverno? Saluti, Julia

No Julia, ma preferisco dire non ancora. :) Ciao, Vincenzo
