St Petersburg Tour: St Nicholas Church

Posted by Lisa Hill on August 29, 2012

Day 1 of our stay in St Petersburg and we had a wonderful time.  St Peterburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, built around a series of canals and rich with exquisite 18th and 19th century apartment blocks build along wide boulevardes intersecting with a network of canals.

Our first stop was St Nicholas Church – a double storey church where there just happened to be a service on the upper storey.  We weren’t allowed to take photos because of the service, but you can enjoy the pictures we took of the outside.

We also enjoyed a special performance of an a cappella five voice choir which was wonderful   Yes, we bought the CD to play at home!
