Kazan Cathedral or Kazanskiy Kafedralniy Sobor is a cathedral of the Russian Orthodox Church located in Saint Petersburg. This amazing cathedral is a shining example of the Empire style of architecture. Construction of the cathedral started in 1801 and the structure was completed nearly ten years later.
Dedicated to Our Lady of Kazan, this church is one of the most beautiful in the world. Tourists can bask in the glory and majesty of this imposing structure. There are a number of different statues and paintings that adorn the walls in the interior of the cathedral.
One particular point of interest regarding this cathedral is a wrought iron grille that is used to separate the church from a square located on its posterior. This grille is often cited as one of the best examples of its kind in history.

Very beautiful, another copy of the capitol building In Washington, even more beautiful due to its history ..
Old shrine but beautiful and breath taking art work
Very beautiful church.. architecture is too good also one can see whole peters from its top floor.. 400 staircase are there but it's worth it...
Kazan is an active church and therefore you may enter free of charge. It is, however, not always open, but when it is you can often witness a church service or even sometimes a wedding taking place inside. The interior, like most Orthodox churches, is just beautiful. You should ask the local priest's blessing before taking photos inside this active church.
Stunning architecture inside and out, just as well it's a place of worship.
