Religious Sights of St. Petersburg

For a city only 300 years old, it is extraordinary that St. Petersburg should have such a wealth and diversity of religious buildings. From famous monuments like St. Isaac's Cathedral to smaller local churches with faithful congregations, from the ornate charms of Petrine Baroque to the pomp and magnificence of Russian Revival, St. Petersburg's churches are extraordinarily varied and often spectacularly beautiful. And it is not just Russian Orthodox churches that decorate the Northern Capital, St. Petersburg's foreign communities have added a number of equally fascinating places of worship to the city, including a number of major churches in the heart of the city, and the St. Petersburg's truly original Central Mosque and Buddhist Datsan.
