Preobrazhenski cathedral  

Preobrazhenski Regiment church designed by Vasilii Stasov in 1825 to replace a regimental church built by order of Empress Elizabeth in honor of the guards who secured her throne. Each of the Guards regiments had its own cathedral. Several were destroyed after the revolution. This remains but no longer contains the wealth of regimental banners, plaques and memorabilia that was in the building before the revolution. The cannon were captured during the Russo-Turkish war.
