Did not expect to see such a wonderful Mosque in St. Petersburg.
We did not go inside as it was closed, but on the outside it looks amazing.
I am not religious, I am just amazed with architecture.
It is near Peter and Paul Fortress, so if you are near there, come by it.

as far as not being religious goes, and not really being into churches etc, this building is well worth a look IF you are in the area, its by a nice park in a quiet part of the city.

We didn't get to see it from the inside, but the building is gorgeous! Essentially the whole building is decorated with the mosaic - it is really something special!
