St Sampson's Cathedral is an architectural complex (Cathedral, bell tower, chapel) that is different from other religious buildings of the city's characteristic mix of pre-Petrine forms and elements of architecture of early St. Petersburg. In General, researchers attribute its appearance to one of the trends of the first half of the EIGHTEENTH century - "Ann's Baroque", but the completion of the steeple faceted marquee with Windows - "rumors", is the only case in St. Petersburg, but typical of the architecture of the XVI - XVIII centuries, Moscow, Yaroslavl, Solikamsk and other Russian cities.
