Description of the Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral

Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral is a colorful Russian Orthodox Church that was constructed in the early 18th century during reign of Peter the Great. Just like anything in this city it looks nothing like any other Russian Orthodox Church in Russia or abroad. Baroque style cathedral reaches an height of 52 meters. After the Russian Revolution the church was closed in 1931. Anyone who served here was either exiled to Siberia or executed. The building wasn't destroyed because it became part of the complex of the Historic Museum and as a regulate warehouse it kept many historic documents. Only in 1980's the Church was returned to its rightful owners, Russian Orthodox Church.
