Smolny Cathedral

St. Petersburg, Russia
4.7 / 10
The architectural complex, designed by B. Rastrelli (commissioned by Empress Elizabeth). Another name for the monastery is the Resurrection Novodevichy Convent. The Smolny monastery was built for 87 years, the work was constantly interrupted by wars and the lack of sufficient funding. The main cathedral was never opened for worship. The entire interior of the monastery was seized during the USSR. Since 1990, a concert hall has been operating here.
