St.Petersburg

Feodorovsky Cathedral

Founded in 1912 but then promptly destroyed by war and soviet neglect it was the personal church of the last Russian tsar and his family. Until restoration only a few years ago a mere pile of graffitied bricks remained, a photo of which sits in the hall to remind visitors. Today the church is in full working order and upon approach the brilliant golden dome will surely grab your attention. Inside, as with most Russian churches, incense smells and vivid religious imagery create a humbling and imposing atmosphere. Mass is held twice daily to which visitors are admitted to attend. Top tip: as is Russian Orthodox protocol, women should cover there heads whilst men, conversely, should remove all headwear.
