While being near the intersection of “Voznesensky Prospekt” street and the “Fontanka” River in Saint Petersburg, it is impossible not to notice the blue dome of “Izmailovsky Trinity Cathedral”. The church is located at “Troitskaya” Square, at a distance about 700 meters from the metro station “Tehnologichesky Institut”.
