Naval St Nicolas Cathedral of the Epiphany

The architecture of Naval St Nicolas Cathedral of the Epiphany combines baroque style with elements of traditional Russian architecture. The Cathedral, designed by architect S. Tchevakinsky in 1753-62 and sanctified in 1760, is one of the most beautiful temples of St Petersburg.

The Cathedral was named after St Nicolas Chudotvotetz (Wonder Worker). It became a kind of memorial in honor of the lost seamen. In the garden around the Cathedral one can see the memorial in honor of the heroes of the Russian-Japanese War.

Naval St Nicolas Cathedral is one of few cathedrals that were not closed in the Soviet period.
