Came across this simple but lovely church whilst walking along the main street in the city. It can be easily missed as it stands up a side street. Look out for it - its Lovely.

This is set back a little from Nevsky Prospect and was a lovely place to visit. Iti ssmall by comparison to the main Cathedrals, but exquisite and extremely peaceful inside. It will not take long to visit, but it is well worth seeking out.

Armenian Church of St Catherine is easily missed. It is located on Nevskiy Avenue behind some shops and you can just see it from the road. Beautiful building.

During the soviet era and just after this church lay in ruins. It was restored in the late 1990s. It is nicely restored but has a very trouble history and has no historical feel to it. Could be skipped. If this review is helpful then...More

A simple church with some very good pictures and wall scenes. Easily missed considering what's on offers nearby. So suitable for a quiet peaceful break.

The Armenian Apostolic Church of St. Catherine made a serene spot to rest and reflect during my otherwise hectic stroll of Nevsky Prospekt. The interior was lovely and restrained, with just enough gilding and painted archways. Although there were only a handful of worshipers present,...More
