About
Although it suffered decades of disrepair and decay, this massive, deep blue-domed, Classical-style cathedral, with its impressive array of 24 Corinthian columns, is just beginning to be restored to its original splendor.

At the first glance, you realize that the detail which differences this cathedral from the other ones in Russia are the domes, which are blue with golden stars. This church is dedicated to the most ancient Russian military regiment: the Izmailovskij. Unfortunately, the interiors haven't got many decorations.

Не отказала себе в удовольствии навестить ещё раз этого бело-голубого красавца, который распростёр свои владения на углу Троицкого и Измайловского проспектов. The Holly Trinity Izmailovsky Cathedral, called after the lzmailovsky Life Guards regiment in whose honour it was built, is the cathedral of the St. Petersburg diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church. At the time of its construction in 1835 it was the largest church in the Russian Empire. The cathedral is a monument of national importance. The fourth highest historical building in St. Petersburg, it is one of the dominant features of the city and is under UNESCO protection.☝️ The cathedral is 86 metres high, with an interior volume of 96,000 cubic metres. The domes of the cathedral are decorated with 1,112 gold-plated stars, forming a total area of 600 square metres.😍😍😍

Trinity Cathedral in St. Petersburg is an architectural monument of late classicism. It got its name from the Izmailovsky Regiment, one of the oldest in Russia. The regiment was founded by Empress Anna Ioannovna in 1730 under the name of the village of Izmailovsky in the suburbs. Often called the Trinity Izmailovsky Church. It is one of the most monumental in the Northern capital.

I liked the stars on the cupolas. I spotted this church in the distance when I was visiting St Nicholas Naval Cathedral, not far from Yusupov Palace. It is a working church, so head coverings and silence are expected. It's pretty inside. Outside is a thriving market where people sell things out of stalls - some touristy, but mostly practical such as clothing.

This is very pretty from the outside with its blue domes covered in golden stars.

It is a working church so no entry fee.

Inside the walls are plain but there are many gold framed pictures, some really enormous, and icons.

Also, unlike some of the other 'churches made into museums', eg Spilled Blood and St Issacs, there was a very nice, well written in ENGLISH display board giving sufficient info about the building.

We were there as a service was being held at the far, left hand chapel. Boy can the clerics sing. Beautiful voices

I saw the cathedral from afar and knew I had to see it up close. It is much bigger than I expected and the blue domes with stars are even more impressive. I went inside (photography is not allowed inside) and looked around. As it was an active church, I’d seen women covering their head as they went inside, but there was a basket of scarves inside in case you forgot to bring one. I definitely recommend visiting to see the outside and the inside if you are curious

Trinity Cathedral is an example of the harmony between blue and white. The Orthodox Church is not located in one of the busiest districts of St. Petersburg however that also means there are not big crowds around it. When we visited the place at the end of the day we were the only ones in the cathedral. If you want to see something different in the means of cathedral architecture, you should not miss the place.

This was the first Cathedral I saw here in St. Petersburg and the outside is impressive but inside was staggering. It was renovated as it fell in disrepair during the Soviet era. But it is now a functioning Cathedral. Women must cover your head and men take off their hats, but it is worth a quick visit.

There are just so many churches and cathedrals in St Petersburg that after a while they all begin to merge. But the beauty of the city is that there are plenty of top tier sites within a relatively short distance of each other. Trinity Cathedral is located a little away from the centre of town by still within comfortable walking distance. Impressive blue domes on the roof. Worth a stop.
