Built in 2012, the Ushakov Church is one of the most strangest buildings in Russia. Located in Saint Petersburg, it’s named in honor of Saint Feodor Ushakov, the most distinguished Russian naval commander and admiral of the 18th century. Because of its odd location on top of a supermarket, locals ironically call it the Church of the Savior on Diet («Спас-на-Диете»).
In fact, the only access to the church is from the back. In order to get inside, you need to go around the supermarket and up the stairs. Initially, the company, which built the shopping center, did not not consult with a diocese, but later the matter was settled, and the church was open for services even before the consecration.
