A favorite and must see in St Petersburg :)
Very nice church, very nice view. Not expensive. You can go to the top of the church for 150rub. Must see location.
A beautiful historical building, but you need to book your visit in advance :(
I love historical building, Smolny is like an integrated building for many purposes. An institute, Cathedral, Museum etc. I attended the Conference here for 3 days. Worth to visit
Love this park and historical area
