The Church of Sts. Martyrs Faith, Hope, Love and their Mother Sophia (Vartemyagi Village, the Vsevolozhsk District). The stone church was built during 1826-1840 by the architect D.I. Viskonti in the Late Classicism style in an estate of Count A.P. Shuvalov. It was consecrated on 8 August 1840. The church was crowned with the windowed helmet-shaped dome and four small corner cupolas. It was surrounded with porticoes from three sides, a vast semicircular in plan apse was adjoined to the church from the eastern side. A bell tower was built up to the church in 1871. In 1936 the church was closed and that transferred for a community centre. After World War II the church was used for a warehouse of inflammable materials and was hard suffered in the 1960s. In 1990 the tumbledown church was returned to the local parish. In 1993 the church was transferred for using as the city residence of the Convent of St. Ioann in St. Petersburg.
