  • Holy Cross Cathedral is located in the oldest district of the city-Zareka. From here started Petrovskaya Sloboda, which became later the city of Petrozavodsk. The Cathedral was built on the money famous philanthropist merchant pimenov, who did much for the city. At the cemetery at the Cathedral are buried many famous people of Petrozavodsk, near a mass grave of soldiers who died during the great patriotic war. The cemetery is the tomb of Chevalier, passing it is impossible not to remember the string song "Chevalier 21 shortlived." Interestingly, the street that runs behind the Cathedral and bears the name of Pertunena, called Zadnekladbishhenskaja. After going a little further, you can enter the street "Trial", where in 18 century experienced (tried). Been on these tests myself A.v. Suvorov. The quality of the weapons he became known with the phrase: "Petrozavodsk famous".

  • Esteemed responses. Travelled by taxi. For me it seemed ordinary Church. Old, interesting enough. But a pity there is no information about it in the territory.
