Saint Isidor’s Church
The construction of this church started in 1903 and was led by architect Alexander Poleshchuk. It was erected so as to welcome the faithful of the Orthodox Estonian community in Saint Petersburg. At the time, it totaled about four thousand members.
The church, crowned with five green domes was completed in 1907. It counts several chapels including one dedicated to Saint Isidor of Tartu. The story says that he died as a martyr refusing to convert to Catholicism.
Religious services in Estonian language ended in 1935. Three years later, the archpriest was executed. In 1994, the church was given back to the Estonian community. It was then restored.
