"The sad story of heroism in "Leningrad"" Cathedrals and Churches Tip by Pavlik_NL
Cathedrals and Churches, Saint Petersburg: 34 reviews and 41 photos
In Worldwar II 'Leningrad' was under seige for 900 days. Surrounded by the Germans the Peterburgers did not surrender, though heavy shelling and almost no food costed millions of the citizens and defenders thier lives. Outside the centre in large massgraves hundred and hundredthousands are burried. A large statue of mother Russia guards over them and a forever flame burns sadly. A less impressive, yet more happy place is the little Cesme-church in the suburbs. The bright pink-white church is like a sugarpie and is the perfect place for a farewell smile when you are driving towards Pulkovo-Airport.
