St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral (St. Nicholas Cathedral of the Epiphany) Tours and Activities

star-5
37 Reviews

One of the few churches that survived the city’s Communist years, the St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral (St. Nicholas Cathedral of the Epiphany) remains an impressive sight with its fairytale-esque white and ice-blue façade capped with five glittering gold cupolas. Commissioned by Empress Elizabeth in 1753, the cathedral’s fanciful Baroque design was the brainchild of architect Savva Chevinskiy and was named in honor of Saint Nicolas, the protector of the seamen.

Located at the heart of the 18th-century sailors’ quarter, the church was affectionately nicknamed the "Sailor’s Church" and served as an important naval center, from where pre-voyage prayers and blessings were made. Today, the two-story church remains a place of worship, as well as a popular tourist attraction, with visitors flocking to admire its magnificent paintings and gilded iconostasis, pay their respects at the memorials of lost seamen and take in the views from the belfry.

St.Petersburg through the eyes of it's real inhabitants and literary characters

St.Petersburg through the eyes of it's real inhabitants and literary characters

This is a comprehensive tour of St.Petersburg for intellectually curious, and though it is not a strict term for me, I might not have particular social graces, when it comes to just small talk, but if you are really interested in Russian history, I am your man. Of course it doesn't matter if you wanna go deep into it, or just do highlights and scratch the surface, each tour would be tailored to your particular demands even on the go, but you have to give me a little credit and need at least 6 days to do it justice. And the more time you give me, the more clear it becomes for you. We are not gonna rush around, cramming information, but take it gradually so by the end of tour you would be able to familiarize yourself with Russian history and literary characters to learn not just who, when and for how much but why they act as they did. Being flexible with no downtime, I unlike other guides offer itineraries that not set in stone, so you can choose to see things that amaze and educate.
