St. Vladimir's Equal-to-the Apostles Cathedral in Sevastopol is the place of the final resting of 13 Russian admirals and naval officers, including Nakhimov, Lazarev and Kornilov. Black marble cross with their names can be seen in the crypt of the cathedral.
This cathedral in Byzantine style was built in 1888. Its walls are decorated with gold and silver ornaments, the floor is made of dark red Carrara marble. Small round windows similar to the portholes on ships resemble about the connection of the cathedral with the sea. In 1932 aviation workshops were organized in the cathedral, and then a warehouse was built in it. During the Great Patriotic War the building was badly damaged. In the 1960s they started restoring it and the works are still going on. However, services are already conducted in the cathedral. There is an exhibition in the lower church devoted to the life of admirals and the history of the cathedral.
