Church of St. Catherine

Commissioned by Catherine the Great in 1763 and designed by Karl Blank, this white classical-style church sits on the corner of pereulok Pogorelsky. The freshly restored interior is rather modest compared to that of some other churches in the city, but the central dome has some impressive A-shaped frescoes painted around the windows. Across from the entrance is a shop that sells icons, vivid cloth, and small clothing items, such as scarves.
