Smolny Cathedral And Convent - Review
The Smolny Convent is situated on the bank of the Neva River and goes by the name of Smolny Convent of the Resurrection among locals. After Elizabeth, the daughter of Peter the Great was disallowed to take her place on the throne, the convent was constructed to accommodate her wish of becoming a nun.
In 1741 however, Elizabeth did ascend to the throne as a result of the coup d'état staged by the royal guards against Ivan VI. The entire convent follows a blue and white color striped color scheme and the architecture reminds people of the basic style of construction that has been practiced in Russia.

Smolny Cathedral And Convent, Saint Petersburg Reviews
The cathedral stands on the site of strength (one of the strongest in St. Petersburg, and perhaps the strongest), formed by the bend of the Neva and the underlying rocks. Very clean and inspiring atmosphere in the temple and around. The image of the cathedral is very beautiful and strict, corresponding to the place. Services, especially for significant events, fill with special joy and light. In my opinion, the Resurrection Smolny Cathedral is the cleanest church in St. Petersburg "energetically". The strongest output of "energy" in front of the cathedral, next to the bell. Every time I come to the Smolny, the soul rejoices.
Beautiful cathedral, though currently under renovation. Calm and quiet place.
It's not quite like the other cathedrals in Russia. It has more elegant decorating. Though one part is still under reconstruction, you can walk inside and see white walls with golden images of the saints. Also you can take around 280 steps up to the bell tower, to see the city.
one of the most buetifull cathedralls in st. petesburg
love the atmosphere outside of this cathedral. walking around in any season bring peace
