Nikolski Sobor or Nikolski Cathedral in Krondshtadt is the largest and latest Old Russian Navy Cathedral in Russia – largest in the set of cathedrals built by Old Tsar Russian Navy for sailors and officers. It’s always crowded as many people from all parts of Russia travel to St. Petersburg and often visit the cathedral thanks to the new road which has been built on a dam going around St. Petersburg on the Baltic Sea. Thanks to Yuri who visited it and tooks these awesome full screen photos.
This is the cathedral itself:
There are huge chandeliers hanging from the ceilings,which were probably used for supporting hundreds of lighting candles.
And here is its large dome.
The new murals were painted very recently, in 2011, because during Soviet times the cathedral was closed and many things were destroyed.
There are four levels of icons, restored according to the saved photos.
A rostrum for a preacher.
Hope you liked it and many thanks to Yuri for visiting. His site is below:
