Vladimirskaya Church information
Lonely Planet review
The 18th-century Vladimirskaya Church , designed by Quarenghi, was used as an underwear factory during Soviet times. It was reconsecrated in 1990 and is now one of the busiest churches in town. For a brilliant view of its amazing onion domes, have a drink in the 7th floor bar of the Hotel Dostoevsky across the road, part of the Vladimirsky Passazh shopping mall. The church’s interiors are also stunning (go upstairs to see the main body of the church).
